Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) architect Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday ended his indefinite fast against rising electricity and water prices in Delhi.

Kejriwal broke his two-week-long fast by taking sips of juice.

"I am a diabetic. When I started my fast doctors said would not live beyond two days. But I survived and fasted for 15 days. If you walk on the path of truth all the powers in the universe help you...We are fighting for the nation," Kejriwal told his supporters here.

Slamming the Delhi government, he said: "A government which can´t give its people electricity and water cannot rule over Delhi. My fast has proved that both the BJP and the Congress are two sides of the same coin."

Kejriwal on Friday announced he will end his fast on Saturday evening.
