The health condition of YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy improved a bit on Sunday after doctors at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS), where he is being treated following his indefinite fast against Andhra Pradesh bifurcation, administered IV fluids to him.

Mr. Jagan’s seven-day fast ended on Saturday after NIMS doctors forcibly administered him IV fluids.

“Jagan’s condition appears to have improved a bit today compared to yesterday. Following orders from jail authorities we forcibly gave IV fluids to him,” doctors at NIMS treating Mr. Jagan told reporters.

“His parameters have improved. The urine output has increased,” they said, adding that ever since fluids were forcibly administered to him there is a bit of improvement in his health.

“The blood-pressure level has improved a bit. He is also taking fluids orally. Now we are planning to give him semi-solid food from this evening or tomorrow morning,” NIMS doctors said.

Some more investigations (tests) are planned on him this evening, they said.

Reacting to a query, the doctors said Jagan is likely to be discharged in the next two days.

An eight-member team of doctors from different departments is monitoring his health condition.

The jailed Kadapa MP, arrested by CBI on corruption charges in May last year and lodged at the Chanchalguda Central Prison here, launched an indefinite hunger strike at the jail on Sunday last against the proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.

After he refused to take food at the jail and in view of his deteriorating health, the jail authorities initially shifted him to the Osmania General Hospital from where he was shifted to NIMS on August 30.
