Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who ended his nine-day long sit-in at lieutenant governor Anil Baijal’s office on Tuesday, cancelled all his scheduled meetings yesterday as he was not feeling well.
Kejriwal, a diabetic, was suffering from high sugar levels for the past few days. The Aam Aadmi Party leader will leave for Bengaluru today to undergo a 10-day naturopathy treatment for diabetes, party sources said.
He has been to Bengaluru for the naturopathy treatment earlier too.
“His trip was already planned. He was to go to Bengaluru, but the unplanned sit-in came in between. So he will go now,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told the media.
Meanwhile, the BJP yesterday attacked Kejriwal over his Bengaluru trip, accusing him of cheating the city’s people.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vijender Gupta also slammed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief for not holding any meeting with the officials in the Delhi secretariat.
“The Delhi chief minister kept hiding for nine days at the lieutenant governor’s residence. Yesterday he was resting at his home. And from today he is going on rest for 15 days to Bengaluru.
“He didn’t hold a single meeting with the officials and nor did he provide water to thirsty Delhi. This is cheating by AAP to Delhi,” Gupta, the leader of the opposition in the Assembly, said in a series of tweets.
“The main reason for getting up from sit-in-protest is now clear. One has to compliment Kejriwal for his timing to get up from his protest to go to Bengaluru. It was necessary for him to get up from the protest on Tuesday as he has to go on leave.”
The AAP leader along with three of his ministers began camping at the Raj Niwas on June 11 demanding a direction to the IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to end their undeclared strike.
