Amid growing concerns for his health, Anna Hazare entered the second day of his three-day fast here Wednesday, an aide said.

The sprawling MMRDA Ground, the fast venue, wore a deserted look with only security personnel, journalists and a handful of Team Anna activists in attendance.


Team Anna member Manish Sisodia, camping at the MMRDA Ground, said Hazare's health was a matter of serious concern and he and other team members have appealed to him to call off his hunger strike.

Hazare, who retired to a room adjacent to the stage Tuesday evening, has not ventured out since. 

"His (Hazare) temperature has come down to 100 from 102 last (Tuesday) night and his pulse rate has come to 76 from 96," Sisodia told reporters.

The mercury in Mumbai touched a 10-year low of 11.4 degrees Celsius Tuesday, driving away supporters from the venue. Similar weather conditions are likely to continue Wednesday.
