Mumbai: Noted social activist Anna Hazare, who reached Mumbai yesterday evening ahead of his three-day agitation for a strong Lokpal bill, is in a good health, his close aides claimed on Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters, his close aide Manish Sisodia said, “Anna’s health is being monitored by a team of specialist doctors. He has been advised to take adequate rest and postpone his fast for few more days since he had developed a bad throat in the past few days. However, he remains firm in his decision to sit on a hunger strike.”
Meanwhile, the doctors monitoring the health of 74-year-old Gandhian say that he is fit to go ahead with his fast beginning today.
The social activist has been unwell for the past three days, which triggered concerns about his poor health and that it may lead to postponing of his scheduled three-day protests.
In the past three days, Anna developed cough, cold and bad throat with weakness and little bit loss of appetite. He was advised to take adequate rest after his doctor diagnosed signs of viral fever.
However, his close aides have expressed optimism that he would be able to sit on a three-day hunger strike to press for a strong Lokpal Bill.
As a precautionary measure, Anna’s doctor had prescribed him soft antibiotics.
