New Delhi: Anna Hazare’s health worsen on Tuesday night and doctors advised him to get hospitalised but the Gandhian, who has been fasting for over a week, refused to do so, following which he will be put on Intravenous (IV) drip.
Dr Naresh Trehan, head of the team of doctors attending on Hazare, said that “The entire team has examined Anna Hazare. There are changes in his vital signs. We told him that he needs hospitalisation. But he refused saying I want to be here with the people and asked for intravenous drips to be put on him here only.”
Trehan also said that the team will once again review the condition of 74-year-old Hazare, whose glucose level is declining, on Wednesday morning after which a medical bulletin will be concerned.
His close associate Manish Sisodia told to reporters that Hazare has lost 5.6 kg since he began his fast on August 16. Traces of ketone were also found in his blood. In the evening, he said that Hazare’s health is fine and there was no need to worry.
Earlier, doctors had advised Hazare not to venture into the sun as it could have a negative impact on his health. As he became weak, Hazare determined not to address people on Monday as he was doing the past few days.
