Satyendar Jain's sugar level drops; docs monitoring

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

As his strike at the Governor's office entered the third day today, Satyendar Jain's sugar level dropped to nearly half of the normal but doctors were regularly monitoring his condition.

Jain is on an indefinite strike at Baijal's office since Tuesday, a day after he, and Deputy began their sit-in there. Yesterday, Sisodia joined Jain in the strike.

leaders are demanding that Baijal direct IAS officers to end their "strike" and act against those who have struck work for "four months". They have also asked the governor to approve the proposal for doorstep delivery of ration.

"We are constantly monitoring his (Jain's) situation. This morning, his vitals were checked and blood level had gone down to 47 units (mg/dL). A normal person should have 90-100 units of it. His blood pressure reading was 110/70, so that is ok," of Services told

The DGHS said a medical team is regularly monitoring his condition.

"The team has a doctor, a and and a helper, and is visiting the minister three time a day - morning, afternoon, night - to keep a constant watch on his health," he said.

Bhushan said Jain's pulse reading too dropped to about 64 this morning against a normal of 72, but as long as it is above 60, it is fine.

"However, ketone level (more than 2 units) has been detected in his body. In a normal condition, ketone should not be found, but when the fat in the body is used, it ends up in urine," he said.

Kejriwal today wrote to Narendra Modi, seeking his intervention to end the IAS officers' "strike" and claimed that Baijal was doing "nothing" to break the impasse.
