New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal continued his protest at Raj Niwas for the eighth day on Monday while his deputy Manish Sisodia was moved to a hospital as IAS officers, accused of non-cooperation, offered to talk to Kejriwal.
Sisodia, on hunger strike since 13 June, was taken to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital after his ketone level reached 7.4, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sources said.
The Shiv Sena and Janata Dal-United, both BJP allies, came out in support of Kejriwal. The Samajwadi Party backed the AAP against the central government. But Congress president Rahul Gandhi slammed both Kejriwal and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the stalemate.
