Hyderabad: The indefinite fast of YSR Congress president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy was technically broken on Saturday as doctors at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences forcibly administered fluids intravenously.
Doctors said they were left with no choice but to administer fluids as Jagan’s health was rapidly deteriorating. He would have to remain in the hospital for at least two more days to recover. The CBI court, meanwhile, allowed his wife Y.S. Bharati to be with him as long as he is in the hospital.
Reddy’s mother Y.S. Vijayalakshmi reached the hospital in the afternoon. Reddy began his fast in Chanchalguda Jail a week ago. He was shifted to the Osmania General Hospital on Thursday when his health deteriorated, and then to Nims on Friday.
At 1 pm doctors informed jail authorities about his deteriorating health. Authorities then issued orders to forcibly inject fluids under Sec-tion 593 of the Prison Act.
Speaking to mediapersons in the evening, Ms Bharati confirmed that Jagan Mohan Reddy’s fast was broken.
“His fast has been broken now with the IV fluids injection. We were very scared about his health and tried convincing him to break his fast but he did not budge. Doctors had to use force,” she said.
She said doctors were giving him antacids and antibiotics. He will be given IV fluids again on Sunday morning as it is not advisable to eat immediately after a long gap.  A team of three doctors are attending to Reddy in the hospital.

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.
