Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda was rushed to the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMER) here after he felt "uncomfortable" on Wednesday night. His condition is said to be stable.
As per PGIMER officials, Hooda was taken to the medical emergency around 9.30pm. After initial clinical examination and laboratory investigations, he was diagnosed with having low blood sugar.
Hooda (64) was attended to by a team of senior doctors, including PGIMER director Dr YK Chawla and endocrinology department head Dr Anil Bhansali.
PGIMER sources said Hooda was brought to the emergency in a white Honda City car (CH-03U-4309) without his routine security cover and escort. It was only after an hour of his admission that a battery of senior Haryana government officers began arriving at the hospital.
Initially, Hooda arrived at the locked main gate of Nehru Hospital from where he was shifted to the PGIMER emergency by the institute's staff.
Ambala MLA Venod Sharma and the CM's aides were present at the PGI when Hooda was admitted. After being shifted to a private ward, the CM was said to be fully conscious and spoke to Sharma and the officers present.
