"The medical board of the AIIMS, in view of the dropping weight of Chief Minister Kejriwal, has recommended to include paratha and puri in his diet," the party claimed in its statement. 

The Aam Aadmi Party claimed that the AIIMS medical board got few blood tests of the CM conducted but the tests for heart ailments and cancer had not been carried out. 

According to AAP, the doctors of Max Hospital had recommended some tests for Kejriwal in wake of his weight loss along with those for heart and cancer. The party said that the CM had sought an extension of his interim bail granted by the Supreme Court by another week after June 2 to get the tests conducted. But the apex court refused to extend the bail further.

On Thursday, a city court granted bail to Kejriwal in the excise policy case. But on Friday, the Delhi high court stayed the trial court order till the pronouncement of its order on Enforcement Directorate (ED) plea seeking stay on the bail granted to the AAP leader. 

The high court vacation bench of Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain said it would take two-three days to pronounce the order on ED's stay application.
