BJP Rajya Sabha MP Roopa Ganguly admitted to hospital

BJP MP and former actress Roopa Ganguly admitted to a private hospital on Friday in Kolkata with "blood clots" in brain tissues.

State BJP vice-president Joyprakash Majumdar told The Hindu: “She was admitted to the AMRI hospital in Salt Lake at around 4 pm on Friday, after complaining of a severe headache and partial loss of vision,”

A medical bulletin released by the hospital said, "Roopa Ganguly has been admitted to the hospital with a small haematoma in brain. She is absolutely stable." Reports said that besides a small haematoma in brain, her vision on the left eye is disturbed and is currently under observation.


Ganguly who joined BJP in 2015 is known for portraying Draupadi in B.R Chopra's Mahabharat in the 1980s. Following the resignation of cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu from Rajya Sabha, she was nominated to the post.

Ganguly is also the chief of BJP's women's wing in the state.
