… leaves all behind to sprint to Nims in style
TNN 22 December 2009, 01:31am IST

HYDERABAD: As president of the AP Olympic Association, Lagadapati Rajagopal knows his sport well. And that may not be politics. On the eighth day of his ‘fast’, 45-year-old Rajagopal effortlessly ran into NIMS on Monday afternoon, ending his 15-hour vanishing act since Sunday night. He headed straight for the Acute Medical Care unit and, as cameras clicked, jumped on a clean bed that seemed to have been awaiting his arrival. Lying straight on his back, Rajagopal closed his eyes and kept one hand on his chest.

The MP entered Nims from its rear gate on Road No. 1, Banjara Hills, and eye witnesses claimed that an auto dropped him outside the main wing of NIMS. To avoid detection, he had discarded the white kurta-pyjama he was wearing when he left the government hospital in Vijayawada. Instead, he made his dramatic entry in a navy blue shirt, a black jacket and grey trousers even as media crews ran after him to catch this act of political daredevilry.

The Nims management, which has by now perfected the art of treating politicians on ‘fast’ since the KCR drama, brought out its team of specialists who were treating the TRS chief. This team too would be headed by general medicine specialist Dr V R Srinivasan along with doctors from cardiology and nephrology.

By late evening, hospital authorities said that Rajagopal had jaundice. Doctors said Rajagopal’s condition was stable and he was on IV fluids. He was subjected to routine investigations too.

The tension at NIMS was palpable, much the way it was during KCR’s ‘fast’. As all the gates were closed, patients and their attendants had to, once again, face the brunt. Staffers at NIMS claimed that the hospital authorities were doubtful of Lagadapati’s admission. But they had kept a bed vacant both at the emergency medicine department as well as Acute Medical Care. An arrangement that Lagadapati was possibly aware of. “The hospital director Dr D Prasada Rao had asked the doctors to be ready,” said a NIMS staffer.

There were speculations that the Vijayawada MP would be shifted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, so as to avoid tension in the city, but doctors at NIMS denied it. They said that Nims was a statewide institute and giving treatment to a person from one region (referring to KCR) and not Rajagopal would become a problem in itself.

It was first KCR, then Lagatapati who are performing their fasting in hospitals.
when saline and glucose is administered it is a food substitute given intravenously… It is meaningless to say that one is performing fast unto death deekshaa
KCR did not do his ‘deeksha’ even for one day in the open.He was whisked to khamman hospital and then to NIMS where he is given best “care” A person known to be suffering from B.P. diabetes, how he withstood fast and recovered within one day soon after his discharge is a wonder.
Lagatapati did it fast in open for some days and personally rushed into NIMS hospital by himself. He has no supporters like Harishrao, Jaysankar who orchestrated things for KCR at every stage when he is in hospital.

Both KCR and Lagatapati redefined the art of “Deeksha” fast unto death or “vacchudo-‘deekshato chachudoo” programme.

people in Potti Sriramulu’s days never imagined that Satyagraham can be done in this manner. LONG Live the name of Potti Sri Ramulu

దీక్షా దక్షులు

ఏభై సంవత్రసల పోరాటంతో సాధ్యం కానిది రాష్ట్ర విభజన ఎలా సాధ్యమయింది ? కే సి ఆర్ తెలేన్గాన గాంధీ ఎలా అయ్యారు?
చరిత్ర ఎలా వున్నా కే సి ఆర్ నిరాహార దీక్ష తో కొందరు తెలంగాణ నాయకులు కేంద్రాన్ని ఎమోషనల్గా బ్లాకుమైలు చేయడం జరిగింది. ఆయన పరిస్థి నేదో రేపో గ వుందని భావించి విభంజన ప్రక్రియ ప్రారంభించ వలసినిదిద్గా కేంద్రం ప్రకటన చేసింది. మెగిలిన ప్రాంతాలవారి కి సహజముగా మింగుడుపడదు . పొట్టి శ్రీరాములు విగ్రహానికి మసి పూయడం ఆంద్ర పేరు లు చేరిపివేయడం వంటి వాటిని తెలంగాణ విలేఖర్లు జయశంకర్ లాంటి మేధావులు ఖండించిలేదు.కే సి ఆర్ దీక్ష సమయములో ఎకపక్షమైన ప్రసారాలు టి జి వెంకటేష్, లగాతపతి ప్రకటనలతో తెన్దవకోణం చర్చకు వచ్చింది.
