Addressing a press conference in poll-bound Hyderabad last Friday, Sidhu had said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi was his captain and that chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh was “an army captain”. This hadn’t gone down too well within his party with four ministers calling for his resignation.

In the statement issued earlier today, Sidhu’s official spokesperson said that the continuous helicopter and plane travel had had a detrimental effect on the minister’s health. The statement said that since Sidhu was on an embolism treatment, he had suffered a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) due to excess air travel some years ago.

Sidhu has undergone a series of haematology (blood) tests which require sincere evaluation, the statement said.

The statement further said that he has gone to an undisclosed location for a complete check up and recovery and is being administered specialised medication, along with breathing exercises and physiotherapy.
