New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal's fast has entered the seventh day on Friday. The activist-turned-politician has been on a fast against Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and inflated electricity bills in the capital.
His health has been deteriorating. On Thursday, doctors had announced that Kejriwal has lost 6 kgs so far. In a statement on Thursday, the Aam Aadmi Party, though said he was stable with all the vital parameters within the normal range. "His blood pressure was 120/74, pulse was 66 and sugar was 106 this morning. The level of ketones has come down from 4+ to 3+, which is a positive indication," it said.
Kejriwal on Thursday alleged both Congress and BJP were winning elections through bribing voters and using muscle power. Kejriwal said several people were asking him why there has been no reaction from BJP and Congress on his fast so far.
"This is because BJP and Congress are both worried as a different kind of politics is slowly emerging in India. So far they are used to winning on the basis of bribing voters, money power and muscle power but now the voters have awakened. The elections will not be elections but revolution," he told his supporters.
