Condition of ex-Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia’s wife worsens, admitted to hospital


The wife of former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, Seema, has been admitted to hospital yet again. AAP sources said this was the third time that she had been hospitalised in recent weeks.

The health of Seema, 49, a Multiple Sclerosis patient, deteriorated late on Monday evening following which she had to be hospitalised. Party sources said being alone at home—with Manish Sisodia in jail for his alleged role in the now scrapped excise policy case and the couple’s son studying abroad—had worsened matters in this regard.

Precisely a month ago, Seema had to be hospitalised just hours before Sisodia arrived for a Delhi High Court-permitted visit at his Mathura Road residence. She was wheeled into the Lok Nayak Hospital before the senior AAP leader arrived from Tihar Jail where he is lodged following his arrest in the excise policy case in February. According to AAP officials, he then spent the entirety of his visit until 5 pm in her absence.

According to party sources, her symptoms are reportedly worsening and her condition is becoming critical due to the disease, which causes the immune system to attack the protective covering of nerve fibres resulting in communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body.

“As per the doctors, she is slowly losing control over her body due to the progression of the disease. She has been admitted to the hospital for further treatment and management due to the pressure and stress resulting from the circumstances,” an AAP source said.

“She was diagnosed with MS, which is a severe autoimmune disease, in the year 2000 and has been undergoing treatment for it for the past 23 years. She is currently showing symptoms including reduced mobility, loss of balance with increased risk of falls as well as bowel and bladder control problems,” the source added.

Citing doctors who had examined her in this regard, the AAP source said Seema is currently undergoing a lot of difficulty in walking or sitting and required regular physiotherapy and medicines to reduce the symptoms and effects of the disease.
