A team of SSKM doctors visited him two days ago. Partha is suffering from several problems including leg pain. The doctors also advised him to do some exercises. However, understanding the real situation, Partha is also trying to adapt to the jail life. But ‘Foodie’ Partha indulged himself whenever he got the chance. Sometimes he demanded ‘Aloor Chop’, sometimes rice. However, on the occasion of Independence Day, there is a special lunch menu at the Presidency Jail today.
According to the sources, today at noon there will be rice, mugdal with fish head, alu potal curry, katla fish kalia, chutney and two sweets each. However, the doctors have imposed restrictions on Partha Chatterjee’s food intake. Although the doctors sometimes gave some concession to the former minister to change his taste. So, even if he is in jail, the former minister can have the Independence Day lunch as per his wishes.
