Veteran Communist leader A B Bardhan passed away on Saturday here.
He was 92 and was being treated at G. B. Pant hospital here. He was undergoing treatment after tests detected a blood clot in his brain and had described his condition as “critical” .
“He is still critical and is partially responding to medicines. Doctors have kept him under observation and are waiting for improvement to take further action,” CPI had said earlier in a statement.
