New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal to reboot fast

Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, April 4: As Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal's indefinite fast entered day 13 about the soaring prices of utility bills, he announced that the 'next course of the Civil Disobedience Movement will start from 6 April'. Incidentally, it co-incides with the anniversary of Mahata Gandhi completing his Dandi march.

Reports say, Kejriwal has lost 7 kgs during his ongoing fast. However, doctors looking after him confirmed that in spite of weight loss, Kejriwal's vitals are normal. Kejriwal is on fast to protest inflated power and water bills in the national capital.

The last statement by AAP said Kejriwal's health is stable at the moment. "His Blood pressure is 108/71, Pulse 67, Sugar 123 and Ketone is 3+. Weight could not be checked in the morning," it said.

AAP alleged the Delhi Government and Delhi Police yesterday betrayed the people of the national capital by not allowing its activists to hand over around eight lakh protest letters to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

Activists Aruna Roy and Medha Patkar, who earlier had differences with him on several issues have extended their support to Kejriwal.During the weekend, Kejriwal's former mentor, Anna Hazare visted him urging him to end the indefinite fast. Hazare himself had undertaken sa similar fast in August 2012 along with Kejriwal demanding for a strong Jan Lokpal Bill. Their movement for the Janlokpal bill which started off with great aplomb in April 2011, lost momentum as infighting within members of India Against Corruption (IAC) began to take over.
