Fasting Ponnam Arrested, Admitted To Hospital

The former MP vowed that he would continue his fast even in the hospital till the government gave an assurance on setting up a medical college in Karimnagar.
Hyderabad | 8th August 2017
Former MP Ponnam Prabhakar, who was on a fast-unto-death for a medical college at the Karimnagar district headquarters from August 5, was arrested this morning.

He was whisked away to Karimnagar Government Hospital.

As Ponnam's health was suspected to be deteriorating, doctors on Monday examined him and stated that the hunger strike could affect his kidneys and heart, too, if he continued to fast further. Responding to the doctors' statement, the state government asked the police to put an end to Ponnam's fast.

When the police took Ponnam into custody, the Congress leaders present at the venue staged a protest against the government disrupting the hunger strike and arresting Prabhakar. But the former MP told the media that he would continue his fast even in the hospital till the government gave an assurance on setting up a medical college in Karimnagar.
