BJP leader Eatala Rajender undergoing treatment  

Former minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Eatala Rajender, who is on a ‘Praja Deevena’ (People’s Blessing) yatra in the Huzurabad constituency, fell ill while he was visiting Kondapaka village in Veenavanka mandal and was shifted to Huzurabad for better treatment.

Mr. Rajender after resigning his membership of Assembly and Telangana Rasthra Samiti (TRS) embarked on a padayatra in his home constituency since July 19 to cover all villages before the notification was issued for byelection to elect the new legislator of the constituency. Eatala Rajender was at Kondapaka village on Friday when he fell ill.

Doctors who checked his condition found that he was suffering with fever and his blood pressure levels too varied apart from his sugar levels shooting up.

They advised him to move to Huzurabad for better treatment.

Develops blisters

BJP supporters said he was feeling unwell since morning but he continued his padayatra despite developing blisters in both the feet.

He was unable to walk and quite weak for the last couple of days.

The BJP leader has so far covered 222 kms during the twelve days since he started the walkathon criticising Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and his government policies.
