The health condition of former minister Komatreddy Venkat Reddy, whose indefinite fast demanding separate Telangana entered fifth day on Saturday, has deteriorated further.
After conducting a thorough check-up, a team of doctors from Yashoda Hospital feared that Komatreddy may slip into coma if he continues the hunger strike. According to the medical bulletin, Komatreddy has lost six kilograms of weight since he began his hunger fast on November 1. He is suffering from stomach pain and his lungs were infected. His blood pressure, sugar and potassium levels were much below normal. The doctors said that he has been tested positive for urine ketones.
The doctors warned that if Komatreddy do not take food immediately, then he might slip into coma. However, Komatreddy has refused to break his fast until the Centre announces a roadmap for the formation of Telangana region.
Meanwhile, Pradesh Congress Committee president Botsa Satyanarayana appealed to Komatreddy to withdraw his fast. He reiterated that the Centre and Congress High Command have already started the process to resolve the Telangana issue.
Talking to reporters at Gandhi Bhavan here on Saturday, Botsa said that the Congress leaders in the State must extend their full cooperation and express faith on the High Command which would resolve the Telangana issue at the earliest.
Meanwhile, freedom fight Konda Laxman Bapuji continued his week-long fast that he started on November 1 at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. Bapuji has also maintained that he would not withdraw his fast before the set deadline. (INN)
