Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Thursday admitted to Jindal Naturecure Institute, purportedly on the advise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and he reached the private hospital on Bangalore’s outskirts for naturopathy treatment to cure his chronic cough.
“We will do a health check-up and conduct a few tests for prescribing our treatment which is based on naturoapathy,” Jindal Naturecure Institute chief medical officer Babina Nandakumar told reporters.[See: PM Modi Suggested Kejriwal to Visit Bangalore Jindal Naturecare Institute?]
Kejriwal reached from New Delhi on an Air India flight with his parents Gobind Ram and Gita Devi, and he was greeted and cheered by hundreds of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers and supporters at the airport.
Declining an official vehicle arranged by the Karnataka government, Kejriwal joined state AAP chief Prithvi Reddy’s private vehicle and they drove to the institute on the National Highway (NH-4) in the city’s northwest suburb.
He has also refused Z-plus security but the city police escorted the vehicle in which he travelled to the institute from the airport, which is about 40 km away.
“Kejriwal’s office has communicated to us that he would be in our campus for 10 days to get over coughing frequently due to allergy and some symptoms we have to examine and treat,” Dr. Nandakumar said. The institute has booked a four-bedroom cottage for Kejriwal and his parents with all facilities.
Despite denials, police force is seen around the hospital with screening of the vehicles and security around the hospital. (With inputs from IANS)
