Hyderabad: Health condition of YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy has been deteriorated on Saturday leaving the doctors with no other option but to force-feed him.
He was shifted to the Nims emergency ward late on Friday night from Osmania General Hospital.
He was taken in a bulletproof vehicle amidst tight security to Nims, where also security has been beefed up. His mother Y.S. Vijayalakshmi and wife Bharathi were present at the hospital.
Earlier, Jagan had refused to take fluids at OGH.  “No, I will not take liquids, I am all right,” he told a doctors’ panel.
OGH superintendent Dr Ram Das, professor of medicine Dr Manohar, and professor of nephrology Dr Manisha Sahay explained to Mr Reddy that his blood sugar levels were falling, his heart rate was not normal and serum creatinine in his urine was below normal.
The panel then wrote to Chanchalguda jail superintendent B. Sadaiah to shift Reddy to Nims. Forcible intravenous fluids can’t be given, doctors explained, as it is a medico-legal case.
Jagan fasts, patients suffer
With YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy admitted at the Osmania General Hos-pital, patients arriving from districts, villages and also the old city for out-patient treatment and for elective medical treatment as in-patients had a harrowing time on Friday.The Emergency Wing and the main gates of the hospital were blocked and manned by the police for security reasons.
The patients had to explain their symptoms to the police officers before they were allowed to enter.
The out-patient department in the three wings of the hospital gets over 2,000 people on a daily basis, but this came down to 500 people on Friday. There was chaos in the morning as patients struggled to enter the hospital and most could not understand why they were being shooed away.
The cops were not willing to take any chances as they were worried that YSRC workers might enter the hospital in the guise of patients and thus subjected each to rigorous questioning.
Baalu, who had come with his father Sai Baba from Nalgonda, had an appointment with a cardiologist.They had to call up the doctor to get an entry. While the doctors came to the aid of the patients who had prior appointments, others had a rough time.
Fifty-year-old Amee-nabi from Charminar came for consultation for thyroid and had to wait for half-an-hour as the cops were allowing only a few patients at a time.
While most patients who came from the city outskirts, those from the districts stayed back as they did not have a choice.
Meanwhile, the hospital resembled a fortress inside. There was a huge presence of security forces from the Task Fo-rce, Central Reserve For-ce and paramilitary forces who were stationed outside as well as inside the hospital.
Doctors, nurses and post-graduate students were not allowed near the Acute Medical Ward where Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy was admitted. Only hospital superintendent Dr Ram Das and a committee of doctors comprising a neurologist, a professor of medicine and a professor of the Orthopaedic department were allowed inside.
The other patients in the ward were separated from Mr Reddy and an enclosure was created to monitor his health status.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
