NIMS doctors foild Jaganmohan Reddy's fast by forcibly administering fluids
The indefinite hunger fast of YSR Congress Party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy came to an end on the seventh day on Saturday with the doctor's team at Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) forcibly administered IV fluids after his health condition started deteriorating. He was shifted from Osmania General Hospital to NIMS on Friday night following doctors advise.
Meanwhile, the CBI Court on Saturday permitted his wife Y S Bharathi to stay with her husband till he stays in hospital. NIMS doctors after trying in vain to convince Jagan to end his fast, the doctors took the permission of Chanchalguda Jail authorities and forcibly gave IV fluids. Bharathi also said to be failed to convince her husband to put end to fast in view of his health condition.
Earlier, doctors described Jagan's condition as critical and feared that he could collapse any time as he does not even have strength to stand. His body temperature, BP, Sugar and Pulse levels dropped to an alarming level. Finally, a team of eight doctors decided to administer IV fluids and did so by taking necessary permission from the jail authorities.
Bharathi expressed satisfaction over medical facilities provided at NIMS to her husband. Osmania Hospital doctors advised his shifting to NIMS in view of non-availability of some medical equipment’s to conduct necessary tests for him.
The CBI Court orders came following a private memo moved by Bharati on Friday seeking permission to allow her or her mother-in-law Y S Vijayamma be with Jagan in the hospital in view of the seriousness of his health condition due to the indefinite fast. While admitting the petition the Special Court posted the case for orders on Saturday.
The court said that Bharathi could stay with Jagan from 8 AM to 4 PM till he stays in hospital. Following court orders, Bharathi immediately reached the NIMS where Jagan was shifted last night from the Osmania General Hospital.
