Kejriwal in Bengaluru for naturopathy treatment
New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was today admitted to a naturopathy institute on the city outskirts for a 10-day treatment of his persistent chronic cough problem and other ailments.
Accompanied by his parents, Kejriwal left his house in Kausambhi area of Ghaziabad around 8 AM.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will take care of the day-to-day affairs of the Delhi Government for 10 days in his absence.
Incidentally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also asked Kejriwal to consult a yoga therapist in Bengaluru for his persistent cough during the Delhi Police’s ‘At Home’ function here a couple of weeks ago.
“Arvind’s sugar level have remained above 300 for the past 12 days. Doctors increased the insulin dose three-fold and intake of other medicines by up to two fold but despite that, cough has worsened and sugar levels continued to remain on the higher side,” sources close to Kejriwal said.
“The cough worsened during the hectic Delhi election campaign. He suffers from chronic allergic cough.The dust and pollutants he inhaled while addressing over 110 jan sabhas in the city made things worse,” they added.
The AAP chief had yesterday skipped a meeting where members of the party national executive voted to remove founder members, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, from the party’s decision-making process.
