A team of policemen led by ASP Bhaskarrao shifted Jagan from his fasting camp at Nallapadu to the Guntur Government hospital (GGH) here in an ambulance around 4.30 am amid a large number of YSRCP supporters and volunteers trying to prevent the cops from moving their leader out of the area.
    
Doctors, who monitored Jagan's health condition said that the ketones in his body have risen which may lead to kidney-related problems besides various complications. Other health parameters too were worrisome. Doctors treating him at the hospital also suggested that Jagan take a liquid diet to improve his condition though he wanted to continue with his hunger strike. They administered him fluids intravenously.

The Leader of Opposition in AP Assembly has been kept under observation. Speaking to the media after Jagan's hospitalisation, his sister Sharmila alleged that CM Chandrababu Naidu made the 42-year-old leader break his fast as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was visiting the state on October 22 to lay the foundation stone for the state's new capital Amaravati.
    
Meanwhile, YSRCP leader Botsa Satyanarayana lauded Jagan's determination to fight for people of Andhra Pradesh and said that the party would chalk out its next course of action towards achieving special category status to the state.
    
The promise of special category status was made to Seemandhra (new Andhra Pradesh) by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Parliament during bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh last year.
