Teesta fast


Gangtok: Dawa Lepcha, the general secretary of Affected Citizens of Teesta (ACT) who was leading an indefinite hunger strike here, was admitted to a hospital on Tuesday. ACT has been demanding scrapping of hydel projects coming up in North Sikkim’s Dzongu area. Doctors found ketone level of Lepcha, on a fast for the last seven days, negative which could affect his kidneys. East district additional collector Naveen Chettri said Lepcha’s condition improved on Wednesday.
