Congress star campaigner Navjot Singh Sidhu has again damaged his vocal cords during the ongoing Lok Sabha polls campaigning. The voracious Congress leader has been at the forefront of the opposition’s attack on the BJP. He is reported to have addressed around 80 poll rallies during the last 28 days, damaging his voice box.
Doctors have advised the outspoken politician not to speak for four days.
An official release sent out by his office said, “Sidhu consulted physicians on early Sunday morning in Chandigarh, who advised two alternatives — either a balm coating over his damaged throat, which would require him not to speak for four days or a severe measure of anti-inflammatory injections and steroid medication along with complete rest for 48 hours.”
Sidhu has chosen anti-inflammatory injections and steroids over the balm coating as it would have completely rendered him speechless. “At the moment Sidhu is under medication and in the process of a quick recovery to return to campaigning at the earliest,” the statement said.
Navjot Singh Sidhu has spearheaded the Congress attack on the BJP. He is scheduled to address public meetings in Bihar’s Patna Sahib on May 14, Ponta Sahib in Bilaspur and Nalagarh in Himachal Pradesh on May 15.
In December last year, Sidhu had damaged his vocal cords after his relentless campaigning. He was then advised bed rest after addressing 70 back-to-back rallies.
