This however, can have serious consequences, as jail authorities have warned that he may lose his special prisoner status. Jagan, who began his indefinite fast from inside the Chanchalguda Jail in Hyderabad, currently enjoys the privileges as a special class prisoner. If he loses the special status, there will be less visits from his family and party members, the jail authorities said.
The authorities say that they were not informed about his fast nor did he seek any permission for the same.
Jagan began his fast on Sunday after his mother YS Vijayamma was forcibly asked to end her fast by the police on the sixth day and was admitted in the hospital on Saturday.
