LNJP Hospital gears up to receive Hazare


New Delhi : Senior doctors at the LNJP Hospital said Thursday they have been asked to be prepared to “receive any moment” 74-year-old social activist Anna Hazare, whose health deteriorated on day 10 of his fast for a strong Lokpal bill.

“Hospital authorities have been told to be prepared to receive Hazare. He could be brought here any minute,” a senior doctor from the hospital told IANS on condition of anonymity.

“The hospital staff has been on its heels for the last 24 hours,” the doctor added.

Doctors examining the anti-corruption crusader have said his health is slipping but Hazare has adamantly refused to be taken to hospital or be administered saline. Since Aug 16, he has only sipped water.
