CHANDIGARH: Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today fell ill during his Sangat Darshan programme at Fatehgarh Churian, following which he had to leave the event mid-way for Chandigarh.

The 88-year-old leader is running fever, officials said. They said the Chief Minister has reached here and all his engagements for the next two days have been cancelled.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Badal has been advised to take rest for the next couple of days. The Chief Minister's National Affairs Advisor, Harcharan Bains, said Badal has a mild fever and it was decided to cancel the second half of the Sangat Darshan programme.

Bains said doctors who examined him at his residence this afternoon attributed the fever to exertion. The Sangat Darshan Programmes have been temporarily postponed. The fresh schedule for the programs will be announced later, Bains said.
