Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will leave for Bengaluru today to undergo naturopathy treatment for 10 days as he continues to suffer from high blood sugar level and chronic cough.
In Kejriwal’s absence, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will take care of day-to-day affairs of the Delhi government, a senior official said.
Incidentally, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also asked 46-year-old Kejriwal to consult a yoga therapist in Bengaluru for his persistent cough during Delhi Police’s ‘At Home’ function here a couple of weeks ago.
“Kejriwal will leave for Bengaluru tomorrow’s evening,” AAP sources said.
“Arvind’s sugar level has remained above 300 for the past 10 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 level continued to remain on the higher side,” sources close to Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal will get treatment at a naturopathy centre in Bangaluru.
“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.
