Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain's condition is stable even as he is kept in ICU of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital.
Jain, who was hospitalized last night, had been on an indefinite hunger strike at L-G office for nearly a week.
Dr. JC Passey, MS of LNJP, said Jain was admitted with the complaints of headache, nausea, abdominal pain, and urine retention.
Jain was put on oxygen therapy
"Jain had to be put on oxygen therapy and he felt better after he passed urine at 2.30 am. His general condition is stable," Dr. Passey said.
Passey said Jain is not taking food orally and is being given glucose, electrolytes, and medication for symptomatic relief intravenously.
"He is likely to be kept in ICU for the next 24 hours for observation," Passey added.
