Siddaramaiah's son Rakesh fell ill while he was on tour in Belgium. However, officials have maintained secrecy regarding his illness.
As soon as Siddaramaiah's family knew of Rakesh's illness, CM's wife Parvatamma rushed to Belgium along with a doctor.
Siddaramaiah had on Thursday appealed to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and sought her help to coordinate with the Indian Embassy in Belgium in order to provide the best medical treatment to his son.
Sources close to Siddaramaiah told OneIndia that Rakesh has developed a liver-related issue and might be critical.
