The hospital said: “Based on detailed deliberations and clinical examination, the expert group of doctors from Apollo Hospitals have drawn up a detailed medical management plan keeping in view the Chief Minister’s known history of diabetes and winter bronchitis in inclement weather.”

While the statement is silent on the ailment Jayalalithaa suffers from, it said: “The present treatment regimen includes continued respiratory support, neubilisation, drugs to decongest the lungs, antibiotics, nutrition, general nursing care and supportive therapy.”


The chief minister has been undergoing treatments for ‘fever and dehydration’ from September 22. The hospital first reported that she was being treated for ‘fever and dehydration’ but later revealed that she has an ‘infection’ and also that her treatments provides a ‘respiratory support’ for her.

In the meantime, the Madras High Court has quashed a petition seeking ‘real facts’ on the health of the chief minister, observing that it was meant for publicity and political reasons. The court added that the petition was not justified.

When the case had come up for hearing on Tuesday, petitioner Traffic Ramaswamy argued that it was a matter of urgency.

    And which law says that meaning of a brahmin. You will create your own imaginary philosophies and you want others to follow. Who the heck invented Karma? If that were true then for all the atrocities that brahmins have done to humans you guys should be boiling in hot oil forever. Is that happening? So realizing that is your your secret. FK off. For another billion years the blood in your hands will never be washed away.

        My dear brahmin, just to give you an idea of how humans perceive brahmins: Brahmins are the most filthiest species in the world Criminals Liars Manitirs M murderers Scalavags Varmints Scoundrels They talk karma for everybody but they know it doesn't apply to themselves Saying: Find a most poisonous snake and a brahmin? Kill brahmin. They will betray and also pimp- try this in your native language. It will be rythmic. Those are only the quarks. Protons and atoms and molecules and matter are much more!

            Why is she admitted to a private hospiatal? This proves that the mediacal facilities in government hospital.are inadequate. In other countries, leaders are usaullay admitted to government hospitals. Why so many people are wasting their time at hospital compund, ministers and officials in particular? For one person, the w state mus suffer" Forcing children to be pierced with sharp objects for her recovery is a barbarous act. Tamilians should stop hero-worshipping leaders. If she is great, she jas ruled Tamil Nadu for 25 years. Yet, people are still ecpecting freebies. Has she turned Tamil Nadu into South Korea - A SMALL NATION WITH VERY LIMITED RESOURCES HAS EMERGED AS AN ECONOMIC GIANT. WHY CAN'T TAMIL NADU? Chennai was the cinema hub of the south but now what has happened. It is all because of her. Some decades ago, a Singpaore business delegated came to invest in Tamil and eventually decided to invest in Karnataga as she made them wait long and laid many conditions. Tamil Nadu should be the IT hub of the South, but lost to Karnataga due to red tape during Jaya and Karu's rule. Other countries are developing at jet pace, Tamilians are still satisfies with free grinders, fans and cheap food offered by Amma restaurants. WAke up before it is too late. MGR was a Malayalee, but Malayees do not give water to TN and many people say Jaya is from Karnataga. First, choose an educated Tamil as the Chief Minister. And stop building statues and memorial halls. Did the ;ate leaders demand for it? Why was Rahul allowed to vist Jaylalitha when his Congress government in Karnataga is refusing to release water to TN? The champion of farmers has not done anything for the Tamil Nadu farmers? Wake up for it is too late.
