Hyderabad: The condition of fasting TDP
chief N Chandrababu Naidu is stable for now but could
deteriorate, doctors attending on him said this evening.
"His health is stable at the moment but it could
deteriorate. His heart pumping is normal and the pulse rate is
84, which is also normal," the team of doctors monitoring
Naidu`s health said.
The team comprising Dr Srinivasan, Dr Dakshina Murthy and
Dr Seshagiri Rao told newsmen that the blood sugar level of
Naidu was 88 mgdl while the electrolytes like sodium, urea and
potassium were a bit higher. He was feeling very weak because
of `protracted starvation`.
"He is not taking any medicines. His blood pressure is on
the lower side but in the normal range," Principal Secretary
(Health) and Director (in charge) of Nizam`s Institute of
Medical Sciences P V Ramesh said.
He said they were persuading the former Chief Minister to
take intravenous fluids as without any nutrition his condition
could deteriorate. Ramesh said the team of experts was
monitoring Chandrababu`s health every six hours.
Meanwhile, TDP rank and file across the state conducted
special poojas in different temples wishing good health to
Naidu has been on an indefinite fast protesting against
inadequate relief announced by the state government to farmers
who lost their crops in the recent untimely rains.
