Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal underwent a checkup at the Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here on Tuesday after he complained of pain in the pelvic region.
According to sources in the PGIMER, before arriving at Nehru Hospital, the chief minister's staff telephonically consulted a senior orthopaedic surgeon, who suggested that an X-ray be done. Sources added that the CM reached the hospital's radio diagnosis department, where an X-ray was conducted. He left a short while later. A senior orthopaedic surgeon examined the chief minister, the sources said.
Hospital officials, however, were tight-lipped about the visit.
Badal complained of pain at the spot where he had undergone a surgery in 2001 after upper femur bone fracture.
