No TV, news for Kejriwal as he heads for 10-day Vipassana camp

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Chief Minister Kejriwal today left for Igatpuri in to attend a 10-day Vipassana meditation camp, days after the hectic campaigning for the Assembly bypolls in

The chief minister will not have access to newspapers, televisions or any other media during the meditation course.

"The CM today left for Igatpuri. He will be attending a 10-day session of Vipassana," a spokesperson said.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will take care of day-to-day affairs in Kejriwal's absence, he said.

In August last year too, Kejriwal had gone to Himachal Pradesh's Dharamkot to attend a 10-day Vipassana session at a meditation centre.

He is known to be an ardent practitioner of the meditation technique. After a hectic campaign post the polls in 2014 and the Assembly polls in 2013, the chief had taken a break to practice Vipassana.

This time, his meditation break comes after the hectic campaign for the Bawana bypolls, where his Aam Aadmi Party registered a win.

Kejriwal had gone to Bengaluru earlier this year to undergo naturopathy treatment for high blood sugar, after months of campaigning for elections in Punjab and Goa.
