In a bid to end rumours regarding Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s health, AIADMK has come up with an intriguing social media campaign. The ruling party through their official Twitter account urged its followers to change their profile pictures to a photo which reads, ” MyCMisFine….NoMoreRumours.” Through a link embedded in the tweet, Twitter users can change their profile pictures to “go against the rumours”.
Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalitha has been in Chennai’s Appolo hospital since September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration. She has been undergoing treatment ever since.

Supporters of ‘Amma’ have come out in numbers to show their support for the 68-year-old CM with many offering prayers for her health in temples, mosques and even outside the Apollo hospital. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Friday visited the hospital said she was recovering well. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu also visited the hospital and said Jayalalithaa is recovering.
Opposition parties in Tamil Nadu have urged the ruling party to release a video or pictures of Jayalalithaa to end rumours about her health that have been doing the rounds. A plea in the Madras HC, that sought a release of pictures or videos, had also been dismissed.
