Kaushambi(UP): 'Kejriwal ji Please save my daughter's life' these were the lines of Rukhsana whose 6 year old daughter Aksa's liver is bloated. . She came to the Delhi CM's residence at Girnar Apartments here on Sunday to plead for the treatment of her daughter.

The government-run Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narain hospital in Delhi, where Aksa was admitted, has told Rukhsana to get her daughter shifted to a private hospital for  further treatment.

Rukhsana lives with her husband Afroz, a labourer,  in Delhi's Sanjay Colony.

For Afroz, having limited earnings, it is next to impossible for him to take his daughter to a private hospital for treatment.

On Sunday after Afroz  went to work, Rukhsana reached the residence of Arvind Kejriwal. She was not allowed to enter. She sat outside the gate and after Kejriwal's convoy left for office, she told mediapersons about her plight.

Rukhsana says, if not treated urgently, her daughter's liver may stop working altogether.

AAP volunteers took her application and assured that her daughter's treatment would start soon

Causes of liver enlargement:  An enlarged liver occurs when the liver swells beyond its normal size. A medical term for an enlarged liver is hepatomegaly. An enlarged liver is typically a sign of an underlying problem. There are many possible causes of an enlarged liver, including hepatitis, metabolic syndrome, genetic disorder, tumour cyst, blockage of main nerves of liver.

Depending on the cause, liver enlargement can sometimes lead to liver failure. This occurs when a large part of the liver becomes damaged and is deteriorating.
