On Day 10 of his fast, Anna Hazare's health was declared "somewhat stable" by doctors on Thursday evening.

Hazare looked feeble and admitted to feeling weak in a 20-minute speech on Thursday afternoon.

"I can go on but due to weakness, I am ending my speech," he told thousands supporting him at Ramlila Maidan.

His blood pressure and pulse are being monitored every hour. http://www.hindustantimes.com/images/HTPopups/260811/26_08_pg01new.jpg

Three ambulances are stationed at the venue to rush Hazare to the hospital, if needed.

"Annaji's blood test results are stable, but there is still a cause of concern for us, as he has not eaten anything for the past 10 days. My team of doctors will keep a close watch on him though the night," said Dr Naresh Trehan, chairman of Medanta - the Medicity.

"He should increase his water intake and not exert himself. He can do without a drip as of now," said a doctor treating him.

The social activist started the fast on August 16.
