Hyderabad: With doctors attending to TRS
president K Chandrasekhar Rao apprehending that his health
might deteriorate if he continues his fast, the Andhra Pradesh
government today made a fresh appeal to Rao to call off his
fast immediately.

"Chandrasekhar Rao should call off his fast as per
doctors` advice", Higher Education Minister D Sridhar Babu
told reporters.

"The team of doctors, after careful examination of
Rao`s health, felt that he should break his fast immediately.
Otherwise, it might lead to serious complications," Director
of Nizam`s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), D Prasada Rao
told reporters.

"If protein level decreases, the patient will lose
resistance power, which may lead to complications. It is
strongly advised to take proper oral nutrition and reduce
totally the dependence on IV fluids, otherwise his general
condition can worsen suddenly," he said.
