Ghaziabad: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today skipped office as he was unwell and underwent a series of tests in a hospital here after suffering severe bouts of cough, a day after he called off his over 30-hour protest.

45-year-old Kejriwal, who had spent a cold night in the open during his protest outside Rail Bhavan, underwent a number of tests, including a CT scan at the Yashoda Hospital where he stayed for around 45 minutes. 

“I have strictly advised him to take two-day's bed rest so that condition of his throat improves,” Kejriwal's family doctor Bipin Mittal, who has been looking after him since 1995, said.

After returning to his home at Kausambi, Kejriwal held a number of meetings with senior Delhi Government officials. 

Dr Sunil, who treated Kejriwal at the hospital, said the Chief Minister had complained of persistent cough. 

“We have conducted several tests, including CT scan on him. We have asked him to take rest today,” said Dr Sunil, adding that reports of some tests would come tomorrow.  Mittal said Kejriwal's “cough increased” due to his two-day protest where he had to speak a lot, besides spending Monday night under open sky outside Rail Bhavan.
