Former BJP chief Rajnath Singh has contracted dengue fever and has been advised to stay here until it is safe for him to travel, his spokesperson said today.

“He (Singh) is stable but the doctors will not let him leave until the trend is downwards,” Singh’s spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi told PTI.

Mr. Singh, who has been in New York for almost a week, went to the hospital for further tests yesterday but later returned to his hotel near the United Nations, he said.

The 59-year-old leader was supposed to leave New York for India yesterday.

Mr. Singh had spoken at the UN about India’s concern on terrorism on Wednesday. He had later in an interview to PTI said that countries like Pakistan that have terrorists operating from their territory should be declared as “rogue states.”
