New Delhi, Aug 23 (ANI): With Anna Hazare's fast for a strong Lokpal Bill entering its eighth day today, India's top cardiac surgeon Dr Naresh Trehan, who is examining the veteran social activist's health condition, has said that his vital signs are worrying and the blood pressure is not normal.
Hazare has, however, refused to be admitted to the hospital.
Doctors earlier advised Hazare not to venture into the Sun as it could have a negative impact on his health.
Speaking about Hazare's health, his key aide Manish Sisodia earlier in the day 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.
The Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, has also written a letter to Hazare urging him to end his fast.
Dr. Singh in his letter to Hazare said the government is committed to passing a constitutionally valid and the best possible Lokpal legislation with inputs from civil society with the broadest possible consensus. (ANI)
