The condition of yoga guru Ramdev is stable and he will be discharged tomorrow provided all his parameters record improvement, doctors attending on him said today.

“He has taken fruits and juice. He is able to sit and is feeling better. He walked within his hospital room,” said Dr S.L. Jethani, Medical Superintendent, Himalayan Hospital.

Ramdev had given up his nine-day fast yesterday after being persuaded by Sri Sri Ravishankar and other spiritual leaders. He had been on a hunger strike since June 4 demanding a tougher anti-corruption law and seeking return of black money stashed away abroad.

“We are monitoring his health every half-an-hour,” Dr Jethani said.

“He wants to go. But since his parameters are fluctuating we advised him to take rest till today. A team of doctors will decide whether or not he can be discharged tomorrow,” he said.

He said there was improvement in his condition but he has complained of weakness.

“There is improvement in functioning of liver. He is taking rest after breaking his fast yesterday,” the doctor said.

Ramdev was admitted to the hospital on June 10 after his condition deteriorated at his Patanjali Yogapeeth ashram in Haridwar.
