New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): Despite being on fast for the last seven days, social activist Anna Hazare's health parameters are "stable", said Manish Sisodia, a close aide of Hazare.
Speaking about Hazare's health, Sisodia said that he had shed 600 grams of his weight and the doctors have said that his condition was stable.
"Look he (Anna Hazare) has not eaten anything since past seven days. He has become weak, but in the morning when doctors came for his check-up, his blood pressure was 124/82, his weight has decreased by 600 grams since yesterday and his current weight is now 66.4 kilograms. His pulse rate is 84. According to doctors his condition is stable although, he has become weak but he is not serious," said Sisodia.
Sisodia further said that the spiritual mentor of Hazare, Bhayyuji Maharaj had tried to break the deadlock between the government and Hazare and added that he too had come with the government's version of the Ombudsman Bill, which was not acceptable to the civil society team.
"Look, a formal talk with the government is yet to begin but unofficially few people have come for talks. People related to Anna have begun the unofficial talks but it did not lead to a final result. A proposal had come from the side of Bhayyuji Maharaj," he added
Hazare's supporters and the government have earlier said during the weekend they are open to talks, with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh saying there was a "lot of scope for give and take."
Moves to open talks come as the Bharatiya Janata Party is organising a nationwide protest against the government on Thursday, while a group of left parties is planning a national protest on Tuesday. (ANI)
