NEW DELHI: Delhi minister Atishi was taken to hospital early on Tuesday after her health deteriorated due to hunger strike. She has been on hunger strike over Haryana’s refusal to release Delhi’s “rightful share of water.”
This came after the doctors advised her getting hospitalised after significant decline in her health on the fourth day of fast.
Talking to ANI, Delhi health minister Saurabh Bharadwaj said, “Her blood sugar levels had been dropping from the night.When we submitted her blood sample, her sugar levels came out to be 46. When we checked her sugar levels from a portable machine, her sugar levels came out to be 36… Doctors are checking her vitals and only after that will they give suggestions.”
“My blood pressure and sugar levels are dropping, and my weight has gone down. Ketone level is very high which can have harmful effects in the long run. No matter how much my body suffers, I will continue the fast till Haryana releases water,” she said on Monday.

Atishi argued that Delhi has been experiencing a shortfall of 100 million gallons of water per day (MGD) consistently over the past three weeks.
Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena met with AAP leaders on Sunday. After the meeting, Saxena stated that Haryana chief minister Nayab Singh Saini had assured him of investigating the possibility of supplying extra water to the city.
