DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi’s wife and Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi’s mother, Rajathi Ammal, has visited Apollo Hospital to enquire about the health of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. Sources in both AIADMK and DMK confirmed that Rajathi Ammal visited the hospital last night and enquired about the health of Jayalalithaa, who has been under treatment there for infection since September 22.

Her visit comes days after DMK Treasurer MK Stalin, son of Karunanidhi, called on doctors at the hospital.

While DMK sources confirmed that she met Jayalalithaa’s aide Sasikala in the hospital and enquired about the health of the Chief Minister, AIADMK sources declined to comment on the meeting.

DMK sources said Rajathi Ammal took the concurrence of Karunanidhi before she went to the hospital to enquire about the health of Jayalalithaa.

Her unannounced visit came to light only on Friday.

Meanwhile, former Tamil Nadu governor K Rosaiah on Friday visited the hospital and enquired about the health of Jayalalithaa.

Rosaiah, whose term as the state governor ended recently, said he prayed the almighty for the speedy recovery of Jayalalithaa.

Ever since Jayalalithaa was hospitalised last month, the hospital has received a steady stream of VVIP visitors including Union Ministers and leaders of political parties besides the all-time presence of AIADMK leaders.

      Pehaps the lady of DMK is more sensible than MK, she has shown that she is a better human in DMK after what we saw venom , and all negative vibes for decades from it, and how they treated J Jayalaliths. Even the congress used her for power against Ab Vajpaye , and see what she gets. But she has been very strong, and see the differance between her and sonia hi, Jaya is above all the petty/cartel/mafia politics, I wish her well.

          For God's sake allow the patient some privacy -- to recover or to die. Her political friends and enemies disrespect the lady with their motivated visits to the hospital.

            When lakhs of followers and fans are eager to know the condition of their beloved leader, the condition of her health is kept secret and while giving permission to few individuals is a sad thing to note. The unconditional affection of the fans is under looked is my opinion.
