Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on Thursday afternoon felt unwell, following which he had to postpone his Sangat Darshan programme of Gurdaspur district for the second half of the day. Going by the advice of his physician, the Chief Minister did wind up ongoing event at Fatehgarh Churian and hurriedly left for Chandigarh. According to information, Badal complained of discomfort and the physician accompanying him found him feverish.
Though it was observed as the reaction of change in weather, the CM was advised to conclude hurriedly the ongoing event and cancel the remaining ones. Finding the road journey more comfortable than the air travel, Badal left for his official residence in Chandigarh by road. Speaking over phone, Dr Fateh Singh, the personal physician of Chief Minister, said the CM wanted to go ahead with his day-long programmes but as he had faced some infection a few months back also, recuperating from what he had taken several days, he was not allowed to go by his wish.
As soon as the CM reached Chandigarh, a team of doctors already waiting for him, diagnosed him thoroughly and found that it was a routine fever, with nothing to worry about. Later, the Chief Minister’s adviser on national affairs Harcharan Bains informed that the Chief Minister had been advised rest for the next couple of days. “The doctors who routinely examined him at his residence attributed the mild fever to exertion,” said Bains, adding that the Sangat Darshan programmes were temporarily postponed and the fresh schedule for his programmes would be announced later.
