New Delhi: Save Ganga activist GD Aggarwal also known as Swami Gyan Swarup Sanand, who broke his month long fast on Friday, was discharged from the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) hospital after his condition reported to be stable on Saturday.

“The condition of Swamiji is stable. He was released on Saturday after thorough check up. We have advised him complete bed rest,” said the doctors at AIIMS.

Sanand, a former professor at IIT Kanpur, was on fast unto death since January 14 demanding cleanliness and purification of the Ganga River.

He broke his fast on Friday after Union Coal Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal, who was also present at that time, assured him that the government is reviewing the demands and all possible concerns will be addressed.

Sanand was on Monday referred from BHU to AIIMS in New Delhi after his health deteriorated further. Earlier, Agrawal was transferred to the Sir Sundal Lal Hospital of Benaras Hindu University (BHU) from the district hospital after suffering a heart attack.

Seven members of Ganga Seva Abhiyan will be present in the meeting that is to be held on April 17 to address the issue.
