Hyderabad: After failing to make fasting
TDP President N Chandra Babu Naidu take fluid, police on Tuesday
approached a local court here seeking direction to feed solid
or liquid diet to the fasting leader.
Saibad police today filed a petition in court of first
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) at Nampally
court here and sought its direction to feed Naidu as doctors
who examined the TDP leader said his condition would worsen if
he continued with his fast.
The First ACMM was on leave and it was the XI
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate who issued directive
allowing whatever necessary steps required to save the life of
former Chief Minister.

Naidu has been on an indefinite hunger strike
demanding adequate compensation for farmers who lost their
crop in the recent rains.
