Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, who was admitted to a city nursing home after ending her hunger strike, was responding well to treatment and will be given semi-solid food on Saturday, a doctor attending on her said.
"Srimati Banerjee is responding well to treatment although she is still a little weak. This will take some time to recover," the doctor said.
Stating that Banerjee, who was admitted to the nursing home late on Thursday night, was on oral and intravenous fluids till now, he said "We will give her semi-solid food today." Her blood pressure had also improved, the doctor said.
The TC supremo had developed 'gastritis' during her 25-day fast to oppose aquisition of farm land for Tata motors' small car project in Singur.
Anxious party supporters waited outside the nursing home to know about their leader's health.
