Navjot Sidhu once again damages his vocal chord due to excessive talking, advised drugs and rest

In December last year, Sidhu had undergone treatment for a similar problem after an extensive 17-day campaign for the assembly election, where he had reportedly addressed more than 70 back to back public meetings.

The election season has taken a toll on Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu who has once again damaged his vocal cords after addressing back to back 80 campaign rallies in a span of 28 days, his office has informed.

The cricketer-turned-politician has been administered with steroids and injections and advised complete rest for 48 hours.

“Navjot Singh Sidhu has been put on steroid medication and injections due to continuous speech damaging his vocal cords. At the moment, Mr Sidhu is under the medication and in the process of a quick recovery to return back to campaigning at the earliest,” Sidhu’s office said.

An official release read, “Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu campaigned across the country, addressing 80 rallies in 28 days. Continuous speaking has severely impacted his vocal cords to the extent that they bled at times.”

“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,” it read.

“He chose anti-inflammatory injections and steroids to rest for just two days because balm coating would have hampered his ability to speak for the next four days,” the release said.

Meanwhile, it is being said that Sidhu insisted on campaigning for the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections to be held on May 19.

In December last year, Sidhu had undergone treatment for a similar problem after an extensive 17-day campaign for the assembly election, where Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, reportedly addressed more than 70 back to back public meetings. He had damaged his vocal cords then too and had gone off to an undisclosed location for complete rest and treatment.

Prior to this, Sidhu suffered from DVT and went through an embolism treatment, as it was reported that extensive travelling had proved detrimental for his health.

Navjot Singh Sidhu who has has been surrounded by immense controversies due to his activities and statements regarding his bonhomie with Pakistani leaders is lately playing the racist card and minority appeasement quirk, which is typically the Congress party’s tilt to take on the BJP government this election season.

Recently, addressing a rally in Rohtak, Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who had vouched to quit politics if Rahul Gandhi loses Amethi to BJP’s Smriti Irani, was attacked by a woman with her footwear for speaking against PM Narendra Modi.
