Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal's indefinite fast against "inflated" power bills entered the fifth day on Wednesday, even as the party said that his health "deteriorated".

In a statement, AAP claimed Kejriwal's health has "deteriorated further".

His blood pressure is 114/70, pulse 74 and sugar 108. His weight has fallen from 65 kgs on Day 1 and is now 59.5 kgs. The ketone bodies in his urine sample is 4+, the medical team said.
