As AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s health continues to undergo treatment, her supporters on Wednesday gathered outside the hospital to pray for her well being.

The chief minister was admitted to Apollo Hospital in Chennai after complaints of fever and dehydration, 13 days ago, on September 22. The first health bulletin released by the hospital claimed that she is receiving treatment for fever and dehydration. However, the hospital later confirmed that she is being treated for an infection and the fever has subsided.

Acting on a PIL, the Madras High Court on Tuesday asked the Tamil Nadu government to get back to it with Jayalalithaa’s health status. The government pleader argued that there is no urgency to hear the case as the hospital is releasing health bulletins on a daily basis.

The opposition, too, has constantly demanded that the government reveal Jayalalithaa’s health status along with a photo or video of the chief minister. Confusion regarding her health has not dwindled as the state government has not released any official statement on the same. Though, the hospital is releasing health bulletins on a daily basis.
