Submitted by alvin on Wed, 2016-07-27 20:52 Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is rushing to Belgium to meet his eldest son Rakesh who is said to be severely ill. Rakesh Siddaramaiah, who was on a visit to Belgium, had reportedly fallen ill in the country, following which his mother, Parvathamma, and a city-based doctor rushed to Belgium on Wednesday. But the CM confirmed his son’s illness on Wednesday. "I am leaving for Belgium tomorrow. Rakesh's condition is critical but stable," Siddaramaiah told the media after resolving the government bus strike. Siddaramaiah reportedly approached External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to co-ordinate with the Embassy in Belgium for treatment of Rakesh. However, the CM’s family is tight-lipped about Rakesh's illness.
