Dehradun: BJP leader Uma Bharti met Baba Ramdev for the second time on Sunday night after he broke his fast on the ninth day. Uma was re-inducted into the BJP last week.
"Baba's aide confirmed he had juice and broke his fast, he had fruits... when I went to meet him, he was sleeping. Doctors are saying that he is recovering," she said.
Uma Bharti, who has been asked to help revive the BJP in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the state's elections next year, met the yoga icon at the Himalayan Hospital in Dehradun for the second time on Sunday.
Baba Ramdev ended his hunger-strike on Sunday. The breakthrough came after a galaxy of religious and political leaders met him at the Himalayan Hospital in Dehradun and convinced him to end his fast.
The BJP had put up a big show of solidarity with the yoga icon. While he was still fasting, the party had asked the Centre to intervene and said that any untoward turn in the yoga teacher's health could become a national issue.
Many NDA leaders like Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and former Haryana Chief Minister and INLD leader Om Prakash Chautala also met Baba Ramdev at the hospital to talk him out of the fast.
