Anna Hazare's health deteroriated on Tuesday night and doctors advised him to get hospitalised but the Gandhian, who has been fasting for more than a week, refused to do so, following which he will be put on Intravenous (IV) drip.
Shortly after doctors decided to put him on drip, Anna said he will not go for it before discussing with his team.
"The entire team has examined Anna Hazare. There are changes in his vital signs. We told him that he needs hospitalisation. But he refused saying I want to be here with the people and asked for intravenous drips to be put on him here only," Dr Naresh Trehan, head of the team of doctors attending on Hazare, said.
Trehan also said the team will once again review the condition of 74-year-old Hazare, whose glucose level is declining, on Wednesday morning after which a medical bulletin will be issued.
Hazare has lost 5.6 kg since he began his fast on August 16, his close associate Manish Sisodia told reporters on Tuesday morning.
Traces of ketone was also found in his blood.
In the evening, he said Hazare's health is fine and there was no need to worry.
Earlier, doctors had advised Hazare not to venture into the sun as it could have a negative impact on his health.
As he became week, Hazare decided not to address people on Monday as he was doing the past few days.
