Kejriwal honours Hazare's pleas, to end his fast on Saturday

Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, April 5: As there has been a growing concern about deteriorating health conditions of activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal due to his ongoing fast, finally Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader on Friday (April 5) announced that he would end his 14-day-long fast on Saturday (April 6).

He started his fast on March 23 to protest against inflated power and water bills in the national capital. Kejriwal's announcement to end his fast came a day later after his former colleague and anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare requested him to end his fast.

While announcing the end of his fast in front of his supporters at Sunder Nagri, Kejriwal said he would have wished to break his fast in the presence of Anna Hazare, but due to Annaji's busy schedule he will not be able to be present tomorrow.

"Annaji has sent his blessings and I thank him for that," the AAP leader added.

Kejriwal said he was going to break his fast on a very auspicious day.

"Tomorrow is 6th April and a very auspicious day as Mahatma Gandhiji on this day broke the salt law in 1930."

Kejriwal has lost 8.5 kg since March 23. His blood pressure was 111/73, pulse 64, sugar 131 and ketone 3+ on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the AAP claimed that nearly 10 lakh Delhiites had vowed to not pay inflated power and water bills.
