Hyderabad: TDP legislator D Umamaheswar Rao was "very weak" and unable to speak today as his indefinite fast in support of a united Andhra Pradesh entered the 10th day even as Congress MP Lagadapati Rajagopal continued his fast in a city hospital.

"Umamaheswar Rao is not able to speak. He is very weak but stable," doctors attending on him at the NRI hospital in Mangalagiri's Guntur district said.

The TDP MLA was forcibly shifted few days ago from Vijayawada to the hospital after his condition showed signs of deteriorating.

Rajagopal, meanwhile, continued his fast in support of a united Andhra Pradesh at the Nizams Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS).

His health condition is stable and there is no cause for worry, hospital sources said.

Rajagopal's wife Padma and senior Congress MLA J C Diwakar Reddy, who met him late last night, told reporters that his condition is stable and that there is no cause for worry.

Rallies and road blockades continued in the state and several other leaders, who were on fast across the Rayalseeema and Coastal Andhra regions, continued their protests.
