Punjab Cabinet Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has damaged his vocal chords owing to the exhaustive 17-day election campign.  The cricketer-turned-politician has now been advised complete rest for three to five days. 

According to an official statement, Sidhu addressed about 70 rallies during an intensive 17-day election campaign in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan.

"The exhaustive schedule has injured his vocal cords. The doctors tell him that he was on the brink of losing his voice and have suggested a complete 3-5-day rest," the statement read.

Speaking to reporters on Sidhu's current health condition a spokesperson of the State Tourism and Cultural Affairs Minister said, "He has undergone a series of blood tests which require sincere evaluation. He has gone to an undisclosed location for a complete check-up and recovery. He is being administered specialised medication, along with breathing exercises and physiotherapy."

Sidhu has been in headlines for the past few days due to his Pakistan visit to attend the Kartarpur Sahib corridor ground breaking ceremony. 

He kicked up a storm by stating that it was Congress president Rahul Gandhi who asked him to attend the event. However, Sidhu later backtracked from his statement. 

"Get your facts right before you distort them, Rahul Gandhi Ji never asked me to go to Pakistan. The whole world knows I went to Pakistan on Prime Minister Imran Khan's personal invite," Sidhu tweeted.
