NEW DELHI: Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and state Health Minister Satyendar Jain, who were hospitalised due to deteriorating health during, have now been discharged. The ministers will resume their duties soon.

"With doctor`s care and your blessings, I am recovering fast," he tweeted. 

"Yesterday (Monday), my ketone level was 7.4 and BP reached 184/100, which was leading to renal failure. But now everything is under control. If doctors allow I`ll try to be back to work today only," he said.

 

Sisodia, who was on a hunger strike since June 13 at Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal's office-cum-residence, was hospitalised after his health deteriorated on Monday afternoon. He was rushed to the LNJP Hospital after the ketone level in his urine rose sharply and his sugar level slumped.

Jain, who was hospitalised at LNJP Hospital on Sunday night after his condition detoriated, was also discharged.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is still on a sit-in protest at the Baijal`s office along with Rural Development Minister Gopal Rai, took to Twitter, saying: "Eight days of wait to meet the Lt. Governor. Deputy Chief Minister and Urban Development Minister shifted to hospital due to bad health." 

"The Lt. Governor could not find eight minutes in eight days for the people of Delhi. Hope he finds some time today," he added.

Kejriwal, along with his colleagues, have been at Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal's office since June 13, demanding a direction to IAS officers to end what the AAP describes a "strike" and approval of the doorstep ration delivery scheme.
