Police foil Jagan's fast, admit him to hospital

In a pre-dawn operation, Guntur police forcibly ended YSRC leader Jaganmohan Reddy’s fast demanding special status to AP and shifted him to the General Hospital where he was given intravenous fluids.

As the team of doctors monitoring Jagan’s health cautioned cops over the increasing ketone and dipping sugar levels, police arrived at the camp in Nallapadu around 4 am and shifted him to the Guntur General Hospital (GGH) under heavy security blanket.

Police physically lifted Jagan as his supporters raised slogans and moved him to the hospital in an ambulance, where doctors administered intravenous fluids ignoring Jagan’s resistance. Jagan’s mother Vijayamma, wife Bharathi and other senior YSRC leaders rushed to his bedside at the GGH.

Hospital superintendent Raju Naidu said Jagan’s sugar, uric acid and ketone values have been stabilized by 4 pm and the YSRC leader is responding well to the treatment. The hospital head denied claims that Jagan had been forcibly fed intravenous fluids and reiterated that he had cooperated with the medical team.

Meanwhile, YSRC activists held a demonstration before the GGH alleging that the state government deliberately ruined Jagan’s seven-day hunger strike demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh. State CPI leader Ramakrishna said in Vijayawada that the government should have spoken with Jagan to understand his demands rather than treating his fast as a “law and order” issue.
