Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is reported to have been examined by a specialist doctor from the UK while there was no official statement on her health condition either from the state government or from the Apollo Hospitals.

According to reports, the British doctor Richard John Beale examined Jayalalitthaa in Apollo Hospitals on Friday.

He is a Consultant Intensivist at the London Bridge Hospital.

Meanwhile, for want of credible and detailed information and with different kinds of rumours going around Jayalalithaa’s health condition continues to be the talk of the town or a conversation starter across cross-section of the society.

According to officials of Apollo Hospitals, a medical bulletin on Jayalalithaa’s condition may be expected on Saturday. There was no bulletin on Friday.

Jayalalithaa was admitted into Apollo Hospitals on September 22 for fever and dehydration.

Subsequently, Apollo Hospitals said she was cured of fever and needed to be in the hospital for observation.

However party announcements were continued to be made by Jayalalithaa.

On Friday, DMK President and former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi wished Jayalalithaa speedy recovery and said the state government should put a stop to rumours about her medical condition.

“Due to keeping of Jayalalithaa’s health condition a closely-guarded secret, some people are spreading baseless rumours about her health condition,” Karunanidhi said in a statement.

There is also no news on leaders of ruling AIADMK’s allies meeting the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister in hospital, he said.

Karunanidhi said though there were news reports on Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan visiting Apollo Hospital, there was no report about his meeting her and asking after her health.

The former Chief Minister said the state government should have at least released a photograph of her in the hospital as she chaired a meeting of state officials on the Cauvery water issue and dictated her speech to be read out at a meeting on the subject in New Delhi.

    We in Karnataka, Pray for Honorable CM Jayalalitha's well being and speedy recovery. But, looks like she has to face the wrath of Goddess Cauvery for depriving people of even drinking water. Depriving "Jala" is perhaps the biggest sin and unfortunately, for political reasons she seems to have committed this horrendous sin. HER DAYS ARE COUNTED. (Pray it should not happen.Our Country cannot afford to lose an extraordinary leader and an administrator par excellence who resides in the heart of every citizen of TN). Make no mistake, what is destined will happen, a week from now or a month from now.BUT, if she mends her way and take recourse at the feet of Goddess Cauvery, She will rule TN for many many more decades.Let God's wisdom prevail on HER.

                          South's medical colleges who are notoriously famous for "donation admissions" are not producing a single good doctor.
