PUNE: Anna Hazare, admitted to hospital with chest congestion, is responding well to treatment and his condition is improving, doctors attending on him said on Wednesday.
"Anna is stable and improving. The congestion in his chest has reduced and he got good sleep last (Tuesday) night," said Sancheti Hospital's Mahendra Kawedia, who has been closely monitoring Anna Hazare's condition.
On Tuesday, the doctors at Sancheti Hospital increased the dosage of antibiotics being given to the activist. Kawedia said since Hazare needs to be kept under observation while antibiotics are administered to him, he might be discharged on Sunday instead of Friday.
"Anna's chest X-ray and blood test results are normal and he is likely to be discharged Saturday or Sunday," Kawedia said.
Doctors have advised Hazare one month's rest, putting a question mark over his plans to campaign against the Congress in the forthcoming assembly polls in five states. The activist is also suffering from osteosporosis, a disease of the bones.
Anna Hazare, 74, was rushed to the hospital here from his village Ralegan Siddhi just before December 31 midnight for treatment.
