Hyderabad, Dec 21 (ANI): Vijayawada MP L Rajagopal who is on fast over his demand for a united Andhra Pradesh reappeared at the Nizam Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) here this afternoon.

Rajgopal dramatically disappeared breaking through the high security in his ward at Vijayawada Government Hospital on Sunday evening.

The MP, whose fast entered the sixth day on Sunday, came to the ground floor of the hospital from his first floor ward, boarded a Qualis vehicle and drove out at about 10.45 p.m.

Rajagopal was expected to be shifted to a corporate hospital at Mangalagiri, 15 kilometres from Vijayawada, and seemed to have taken advantage of the prevailing uncertainty.

On Thursday, he was shifted to the government hospital after the Andhra Pradesh Government refused to shift him to NIMS fearing disturbance.

Additional security forces have been rushed to various districts, as the condition of elected representatives who are on a fast-unto-death for a united Andhra Pradesh is turning critical.

The State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) has asked the government to consider shifting MLC Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy, and MLA D. Umamaheswara Rao to NIMS. (ANI)
