Hyderabad: YSRCP president Y S Jaganmohan continued his indefinite fast in the Chenchalguda jail on day two on Monday demanding that the Centre revoke its “unilateral” decision to bifurcate the state. Jagan refused the plea by jail officials to call off the fast. According to a health bulletin released by the Jail authorities, Jagan’s health condition was stable. His blood pressure (BP), pulse rate and sugar levels in the blood were said to be normal.

He was under medical examination. Doctors have been specially deputed to check the health status of Jagan round-the-clock. Jail officials say that Jagan had not taken any food. He has been only drinking water. Despite his indefinite fast, he appeared before the Judge through video conference clad in a blue shirt and a trouser.

During the trial, he had a glass of water. Security near the jail has been beefed and no one was being allowed to meet him. The party MLA Praveen Kumar Reddy had made an attempt to meet Sunil Reddy another accused in the illegal assets case who also happens to be his distant cousin. But the Jail authorities refused Mulakat.

However, on the request of the YSR Congress leaders Shobha Nagi Reddy, G babu Rao and Praveen Kumar Reddy, the Inspector General (IG) Sunil Kumar promised to release health bulletin explaining the health status of Jagan every evening.
Party senior leader K Ramakrishna said that Jagan would not give up his deeksha until the Centre accepted their demands on the bifurcation of state. He alleged that the Congress conspired to marginalise the YSRCP and its leadership by deciding to bifurcate the state.
Expressing solidarity to Jagan, YSR party workers and Jagan supporters flocked to the jail. As the situation went out of control with huge gathering, police took many into preventive custody and resorted to mild lathicharge to disperse them. In a novel protest against the division of state and supporting Jagan’s deeksha, a group of women walked on their knees near jail premises when police obstructed them from staging dharna.
Meanwhile, Telangana Advocates JAC submitted a memorandum to IG ( Prisons) demanding that Jagan be shifted to a jail in Seemandhra region from Chenchalguda jail. They expressed fears that Jagan’s deeksha would create law and order problem in Telangana. Jail authorities while confirming that Jagan had not eaten anything for last 24 hours, they said he had so far not given any letter seeking permission for the fast. Under jail rules, they said an undertrial prisoner could not resort to any kind of protests. It could even lead to the prisoner losing his special privileges and the facility of Mulakats. However, for that the jail authorities would have to make a plea before the court since special privilege was granted to him by the special court.
