Kolkata: Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee's health condition improved today after he was admitted to a city nursing home with complaints of respiratory problems yesterday.

"Somnath Chatterjee is progressing fast and he is much better today," manager (Administration) of Belle Vue clinic PK Tondon said to a news agency.

He said that doctors were satisfied with the progress made by Chatterjee, an asthma patient, though he was still in the Intensive Thoracic Unit and under observation.

"I think not before Tuesday or Wednesday, he will be discharged," Tondon said.

Chatterjee (81) was brought to the city from his Santiniketan residence where he was taken ill.
