Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang on Saturday said he has been diagnosed with typhoid.
Tamang was convalescing at his residence and a team of doctors from the STNM Hospital was monitoring his health, a senior leader of the ruling Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) said.
It has been confirmed by the Sikkim chief minister himself.
“I would like to inform all my dear people of Sikkim that I have been diagnosed with typhoid,” Sikkim CM informed in a social media post.
He added: “Although I was enthusiastically looking forward to being a part of the momentous Indra Jatra celebrations, I was unable to do so owing to my health conditions.”
He also canceled his visit to Rabong in South Sikkim to attend the Pang Lhabsol celebrations and the public meeting scheduled on Sunday.
