A PIL was filed in the Madras High Court seeking a detailed report from the government on the health condition of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa and releasing of photographs of the meeting she is said to have had with her cabinet colleagues and officials in the hospital, where she is admitted. The petitioner “Traffic” Ramaswamy, a social activist, submitted that the people of Tamil Nadu were eager to know about the health condition of Jayalalithaa.
Holding that Governor C Vidyasagar Rao and Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan had reportedly visited the hospital, the petitioner said they have not given details about her health condition. The petition is expected to be taken up on Tuesday for hearing.
He also submitted that the police had blocked the roads leading to the corporate hospital where Jayalalithaa was undergoing treatment by erecting barricades preventing others to go to the hospital for treatment.
