Manish Sisodia was taken to hospital after his ketone levels shot up. “Manish Sisodia’s ketone level reaches 7.4. Yesterday it was 6.4. ideally, it should be zero. 2+ level is considered to be the danger zone. A team of doctors reaching LG house to see him,” read a retweet from Mr Kejriwal.
Delhi health minister Satyendar Jain was also hospitalised late Sunday after his health deteriorated. Jain, who handles six ministries in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, was taken to the LNJP Hospital after he complained of a headache, nausea, and breathing problems, Dr JS Passey was quoted by a news source as saying.
Mr Kejriwal, who started his protest on Monday evening — says till Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal asks bureaucrats to change their approach, he will not leave the waiting room of the Lieutenant Governor’s house-cum-office in Delhi. Three of his ministers – Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai and Satyendar Jain – who accompanied him, also went into protest mode.
