        Is she still alive? Is that a exercise to buy time in Commie fashion because her replacement has not been decided, yet? How come after so many "good" news that have been given continuously, she is still in Hospital?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Whatever the case, best wishes to her.

          Why a CM has to go to Private hospital..stead of a Govt hospital, whose administration they own it ultimately and responsible for?

            It is to be very much suspected that some '420' is at play. Probably someone is trying to spirit away the fabulous wealth before it is too late.

              May God Bless Jaya Lalita to get well soon. She is like the mother of Tamilnadu and an able CM. Let us all pray for her speedy recovery.

                Though there was many cases against her, she has done many good things - very radically to support the poor and their uplift.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;She is truly a mother to many families. God will bless her.

                      these tambis are being fooled by amma's party and the tambis are too willing to be fooled rather than to get out the truth..., whether she is alive or not OR whether she will be fit enough to give a proper administration if she's alive ! Her chamchas around appears to be in the process of sharing wealth and searching for the hidden black money!! Who on earth will get admitted in a hospital like Appolo for three weeks for dehydration??

                        What is the problem in giving the actual status of her health? Is someone is buying time that has ped? Governor should act immediately and ask for living CM instead of waiting for time.

                          All VIPs/VVIPs go o see Amma at Apollo Hospital and come out and say the AIDMK Supremo is recovering. The Apollo Hospitals say that she is under respiratory support system and is responding well. Now the doubts arise what is the real state of health of the Tamil Nadu CM. These Corporate Hospitals are bringing in Doctors from UK, AIMS and the said Doctors are coming and going back by flights after giving necessary medical advise to Apollo Team of Doctors. Now few are expressing doubts that her signatures might be forged and an interim Chief Minister to be appointed. The said view might also be correct. When a person is on ventilator support cannot sign then how her signature can be forged. I have heard some people take thumb impressions of such individuals who are not in a position to sign. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister is having several properties worth crores and crores in places like Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Tamil Nadu and else where.which is a known fact. The close aids of Amma only know what is happening. It reminds me of Sri Sathya Baba of Prshanthi Nilayam in the then combined stateof Andhra radish at Anantapur where Baba was also treated for days together in his Super Speciality Hospital for several days and his disciples and some others made merry of Baba's ets.lt;br/gt;The Governor of Tamil Nadu must take a decision at the earliest to run the State.
