New Delhi, Dec 4 : Prominent farmer leader and Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) President Balbir Singh Rajewal, who has been holding talks with the Centre, complained of dizziness on Friday and was taken to Fortis Hospital in Gurugram for a check-up.
Rajewal, 77, was among a group of more than 34 farmer leaders who put out a five-point set of demands that seeks to frame a specific law on minimum support price (MSP) and end the punishment provision for stubble burning, during the fourth round of talks with the Central government here on Thursday.
"After having his breakfast, Rajewal ji complained of dizziness. We have taken him to Fortis for check-up," BKU General Secretary Onkar Singh told IANS over phone.
He said after undergoing certain tests, he was declared 'perfect in health' and allowed to go back.
"Wishing Bharatiya Kisan Union Leader S. Balbir Singh Rajewal-ji, who is undergoing a check-up in Fortis Hospital, Delhi, a speedy recovery," Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said in a tweet.
Rajewal was once considered close to the Akalis. He has headed his faction since he broke away from the original outfit in the 1990s.
