"He (Jagan) is continuing with his fast. He has so far not informed (written communication) to jail authorities about his fasting," a senior jail official said.
The fast, launched by Jagan to seek ‘justice for Seemandhra people,’ in the wake of Centre's move to divide Andhra Pradesh has entered fifth day on Thursday.
Jagan has been lodged in Chanchalguda jail since May 27 last year after his arrest by CBI on corruption charges.
Jagan's mother and YSR Congress honorary president YS Vijayamma had called off her indefinite fast opposing proposed bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh on August 24 after she
was forcibly shifted to a hospital in Guntur.
She had undertaken the hunger strike in protest of the manner in which the decision to divide the state was taken by the Central government last month.
Jagan had resigned as Kadapa MP and Vijayamma as MLA in the wake of the protests in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions against the move to create Telangana.
