Jammu 11 March: A Kashmir based website www.dapaan.com has written that the Former Health Minister, Choudhary Lal Singh is unwell but he is refusing to visit any doctor as he fears that doctors might take revenge against his behaviour during his tenure as Health Minister. The website further goes on to say that instead of consulting the doctors of the government hospitals, he is consulting soothsayers (Tantrik).
Dapaan does not stop at that and even alleges that the former minister’s wife held a press conference to address the issue. The website says,
Addressing a press conference at Jammu press club, Singh’s wife, Kanta Andotra asked the Peoples Democratic Party President Mehbooba Mufti to hasten the process of government formation, so that Singh could “fearlessly” visit a doctor.
“For the past several days he (Singh) is running a high fever. He refuses to see a doctor fearing they would diagnose him with some embarrassing ailment,” Andotra said. “Please have some mercy on us and cobble up the coalition so that he can fearlessly visit a hospital like a ringmaster again.”
When reporters tried to contact him, he denied any such event. He said he is perfectly fine and his wife never addressed any press conference anywhere. These are all rumours. And while talking to him, reporters felt that he was hurt due to the fake statements.
Following which Lal Singh himself lodged an FIR at the Gandhi Nagar police station. Later he said that during his tenure as a Health minister, he had cordial relations with the doctors association and few people are jealous of the works that he has done for the public, that could be the reason behind such rumours.
