Kerala Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, who suddenly fell ill Tuesday morning, while waiting to pay his last respects to Jyoti Basu at the West Bengal Assembly here, is now fine according to his cabinet colleague Education Minister M.A. Baby.
He felt dizzy while waiting in the assembly complex and soon he was rushed to a hospital and doctors who examined him said that it might have been a stomach upset, Baby told Inditop.
He has since returned to his room and is resting. He is fine and will return to Kerala tomorrow (Wednesday), Baby added.
Balakrishnan, a CPI-M politburo member, reached Kolkata Monday from Delhi to pay his last respects to the veteran leader.
