New Delhi: AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal's indefinite fast against "inflated" power bills entered the fifth day today, even as the party said that his health "deteriorated".

In a statement, Aam Aadmi Party claimed Kejriwal's health has "deteriorated further".

His blood pressure is 114/70, pulse 74 and sugar 108. His weight has fallen from 65 kgs on Day 1 and is now 59.5 kgs. The Ketone in his urine sample is 4+, the medical team said.

It also claimed that 82,726 people yesterday signed protest letters pledging not to pay the "inflated" power and water bills, taking the total to over the 2.69 lakh mark.

These letters would be delivered to Delhi chief minister Shiela Dikshit shortly, the statement said.
