NEW DELHI: With only a day left for the oath-taking ceremony, Delhi's chief ministerial-designate Arvind Kejriwal is still unwell, according to party sources.

Kejriwal has been down with fever for the last four days. Despite this, he met President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Ministers Rajnath Singh and Venkaiah Naidu over the past two days.

An AAP leader said, a couple of meetings have been lined up for Kejriwal, but it will take place depending upon his health.

"He has been down with fever for the last four days. Even today after he came back, it was difficult for him to sit, so we had to cancel all the scheduled meetings," an AAP leader said.

The AAP's National Convenor had left celebrations mid-way on the counting day and left for his Kaushmabi residence to take rest.

The AAP chief also has a sore throat, which often  aggravates during winter. Even during the campaigning, he had to suspend his jansabhas due to it. Kejriwal is also a diabetic.
