The 74-year-old anti-corruption supporter, ailing for the past couple of weeks, was hasty to the Sancheti Hospital on the advice of his physician, KH Sancheti.
The associate said that “Sancheti examined Hazare today (Sunday) morning and has advised him to remain in hospital at least for another two-three days.”
“Hazare has been advised to take it easy after discharge and take complete rest for another week or 10 days,” associate added.
His doctors said that while there are signs of bronchitis, Hazare is not suffering from pneumonia as considered in some sections of media. He has been managed antibiotics and undergone tests and his condition is improving, they said.
The social activist has been suffering from a chest infection because of heavy coughing and blocking for the past few days. A slight swelling was discerned in his chest, required hospitalisation.
The dates of the meeting, which was to talk about the future strategy of the anti-corruption struggle, will be announced later.
