Fasting Ganga crusader taken to hospital

Dehradun, July 10

The 18-day fast by octogenarian Prof GD Agarwal, known as Swami Gyan Swaroop Sanand at Matra Sadan, Haridwar, a crusader of the ‘Save Ganga’movement, was forcibly disrupted by the authorities after the medical examination suggested that Swami Sanand’s condition was turning serious.

On the 19th day of his fast on Tuesday and after reporting deteriorating health conditions, Swami Sanand was taken to a hospital in Dehradun and kept under medical observation. Even at the hospital, Swami Sanand pledged to continue his fast.

He asserted that he would not call off the agitation until his demand for passing the draft of the Ganga Protection Act was fulfilled. — TNS
