Delhi Water Minister Atishi ended her indefinite hunger strike after her health deteriorated and she was hospitalised early on Tuesday, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party announced.

Atishi was taken to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) Hospital after her blood sugar levels dropped to 36.

AAP claimed Atishi's blood sugar levels plummeted to 43 at midnight and further dropped to 36 by 3 am. AAP party also shared images and visuals of the AAP leader being taken to the hospital late at night.

AAP MP Sanjay Singh said they will write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and will also raise the issue of Delhi's water crisis in Parliament with opposition parties.

"Atishi was on a hunger strike for 5 days. Her health was deteriorating. Doctors had been asking her to break the strike. Her health started worsening last night... Her lowest sugar level was 36. Doctors suggested that she had to be admitted immediately otherwise she might lose her life... She was admitted to LNJP at 3.30 - 4 am in the ICU... She is still in the ICU... We are also writing to the PM to release Delhi's water... The indefinite hunger strike is being stopped, but we will raise our voice in the Parliament..," Sanjay Singh said.

Atishi was on an indefinite hunger strike for the past four days against the Haryana government for not releasing 100 million gallons per day (MGD) of water, creating a water crisis in the national capital. She demanded that Haryana release Delhi's rightful share of water.

Doctors from LNJP Hospital had examined Atishi on Monday and advised her to get admitted due to adverse health effects from her indefinite hunger strike.

Sharing an update on Atishi's health, Dr Suresh, Medical Director at LNJP Hospital, said, "Changes were detected in her ECG, and ketones were found in her urine, leading to her being admitted to the ICU. She was advised to get admitted to the hospital yesterday, but she refused. Her sugar level is low. All blood tests have been conducted, and the results are normal. She is currently stable."

As Delhi grapples with water shortage, Atishi has accused the BJP-led Haryana government of not releasing 100 million gallons per day (MGD) of water, impacting over 28 lakh people in the national capital.
