Anna Hazare, who is undergoing treatment in a city hospital, will leave for Bangalore on Thursday for naturopathy treatment.

The 74-year-old activist will fly to Bangalore in the morning and get admitted to Bangalore’s Jindal Naturecare Institute, his close aides told PTI. Meanwhile, doctors at Medanta — The Medicity said his health has improved after the treatment.

Dr AK Dubey, medical superintendent of the hospital, said, “In the morning, Anna expressed his desire to go for a walk. He slept well on Tuesday and this is certainly a good sign.” According to the doctor, Anna is being given low-sodium diet.

The anti-graft activist was admitted to Medanta on Sunday.

During his stay in the Gurgaon hospital, allegations were levelled that he was administered overdose of anti-biotics and steroids while he was in treatment at Sancheti hospital in Pune. However, Hazare has said there was no basis to these allegations and stood by Dr KL Sancheti.

Dr RR Kasliwal, head of internal medicine at Medanta, said, “He came to us with complaints of breathlessness and high blood pressure. As far as we know he has no heart ailment and his vital organs are all right.”
