Speculations over the CM’s health have been raging for a while now, with opposition parties demanding a photographic proof be released to quell the rumours. In a bid to end rumors, AIADMK on Monday used its official Twitter account to urge followers to change their profile pictures to a photo which reads, ” MyCMisFine….NoMoreRumours.”

    There is a true democracy for you! lt;br/gt;You question the CM's health of any state, the state police imprison you; you question the PM's credentials, you get arrested. lt;br/gt;What is the crime these people have committed?

    Really pathetic when the government arrests a person for making a statement about a CM whom he has not seen for 2 months. Is this how autocracy feels like? ADMK is doomed.
