New Delhi, August 30:   Anna Hazare, who was hospitalised after his fast, on Tuesday received a ‘Get Well Soon' message from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Dr. Singh sent the message through an official of his personal staff along with a bouquet of flowers, PMO sources said.

Hazare was admitted in a hospital in Gurgaon on Sunday after he ended his fast for a strong Lokpal Bill.

Doctors attending on the 74-year-old activist have said his condition is stable and moving towards normalcy.
The condition of Anna Hazare, who has been undergoing treatment at a hospital here after ending his 12-day fast for a strong Lokpal, is satisfactory and it will take another four to five days before he can be discharged, a doctor said today.

“He is doing well and is stable. He has also started taking soft diet and today he took poha (a dish made of flattened rice),” Yatin Mehta of Medanta Medicity, who is monitoring 74-year-old Hazare's health, said.  “He walked for sometime in his room. His blood pressure is 124/84 and pulse rate is 78 beats per minute,” the doctor told reporters.

Mehta said ketones in his urine have reduced which is a “good sign”. It will take four to five days before he can be discharged from the hospital, he said.  Asked about how the activist is spending his time in the hospital, Mehta said, “He has not read newspapers but seen some news bulletins on television. His spirits are high.”

The doctor said his weight stood at 66.6 kg and it has not reduced since yesterday. “This means his condition is absolutely satisfactory,” he said.

Hazare, who was admitted in the hospital on Sunday, had weighed 72 kg before he went on his fast. PTI
