Chandigarh BJP president Arun Sood was the one who first confirmed the news. Speaking at a press conference, Arun Sood had said, “She had suffered a broken left arm at her Chandigarh house on November 11 last year. After her medical tests at Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh, she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. The disease had spread to her left arm and right shoulder. For treatment she had to go to Mumbai on December 4.”
Arun Sood also said that Kirron is currently recovering and though she isn’t admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital anymore, she does have to visit the hospital for regular treatment. “Even though she is recovering after her four-month treatment and no longer admitted at Kokilaben Hospital, Mumbai, she has to visit the hospital regularly for treatment,” he said.
