The doctors of Government General Hospital at Vijayawada where he was forcibly administered fluids to break his indefinite fast impressed upon the officials and the police that he would have to be attended by cardiac specialists and his condition needed immediate attention.
Meanwhile, the State Human Rights Commission directed the government to consider shifting of the fasting TDP MLA to NIMS.
