DEHRADUN: Uttarakhand Chief?Minister Harish Rawat, who was admitted to AIIMS in Delhi on June 13 after sustaining a neck injury during a rough chopper ride, is likely to remain hospitalised for some more time as he is still under observation, his aide said here.

The doctors are divided over whether Rawat should go for an operation or not, the Chief Minister's media incharge Surendra Kumar told PTI.

"Doctors attending on him at AIIMS are not one in their opinion. Some of them say he should go for an operation while some others say he should wait for the neck injury (a cervical one fracture) to heal on its own. It will have to be seen what they finally advise," Kumar said.

As of now it is not clear when the Chief Minister will be discharged from AIIMS and permitted to resume his duties here, Kumar said.

Rawat had sustained a neck injury while going to Delhi in a plane recently. The aircraft had run into clouds and the Chief Minister, who had not fastened his seat belt properly, had hit the plane ceiling hurting himself in the neck.
