Hyderabad: The indefinite fast launched by jailed YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganomhan Reddy to protest the move to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh entered third day on Tuesday.

"He (Jagan) is continuing with his fast and did not take lunch and dinner even today," Chanchalguda Jail Superintendent B Saidaiah told a news agency adding his health condition was stable.

Jagan began his indefinite hunger strike on Sunday.

YSR Congress honorary president Y S Vijayamma had called off her indefinite fast on August 24 opposing proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh after she was forcibly shifted to a hospital in Guntur.

She had then announced that her son and jailed Kadapa MP Jaganmohan Reddy would undertake an indefinite fast seeking "justice for Seemandhra people."
