After refusing blood and urine tests, Hardik Patel now not letting doctors weigh him: Reports

Congress-supported PAAS (Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti) leader Hardik Patel, who has been on a fast since past 13 days has now refused to let the doctors weight him, reports DeshGujarat.com. He has been refusing to let doctors take blood and urine tests since last three days. PK Solanki, a doctor at Sola Civil Hospital, has said that Hardik has not allowed his team to take blood and urine samples after 30th August. Even prior to that, he allowed the samples to be taken only twice. However, Patel did let allow the blood pressure and pulse rate to be measured.

Following his indefinite fast, reports have emerged that despite not having food, Hardik Patel has actually gained weight. Hardik is reportedly consuming water and fruits in his fast.

The doctors believe that the blood and urine samples will give them a clarity regarding the health status of Hardik Patel and other complications arising out of his fast.

Geeta Patel a PAAS leader, has reportedly stated that there were major discrepancies in results of Hardik’s blood tests done by the government doctors and private laboratories. She stated that while government lab results cited all reports to be normal, private laboratories results have pointed to complications. Hardik Patel’s associates have said that they fear that the government might forcefully admit him to the hospital to end his fast claiming his vital organs are damaging.

Hardik Patel, who was once the face of Patidar agitation in Gujarat, is now convicted for causing riots in Mehasana. Hardik Patel has been found guilty of charges related to arson and creating a ruckus at the office of BJP MLA Rushikesh Patel. He is also accused of large-scale violence in the state of Gujarat during the 2015 Patidar Andolan seeking reservations for Patidar community. A sedition case is also going on against him in an Ahmedabad court.

Interestingly, Gujarat Congress, which had earlier supported Jignesh Mevani in the 2017 state assembly elections, has come out in support of Hardik and announced a 1 day fast in solidarity with Hardik. Notably, in April this year, Congress President Rahul Gandhi had also pioneered ‘rapid fasting‘ by fasting for a few hours between 11 am to 4 pm. Congress leaders, including Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee President Ajay Maken had feasted on chhole bhature before going on the ‘symbolic’ fast.
