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.”
Several leaders, including the leader of opposition MK Stalin have visited the hospital over the weekend and talked to the doctors regarding the condition of the chief minister. Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi was also in Chennai on Friday to meet the ailing leader.
All accounts, including the latest health bulletin released by the hospital on Monday, state that Jayalalithaa is being closely monitored and is improving even as she continues to undergo necessary treatment. “Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa is being constantly monitored by intensivists and other consultants in the expert panel,” read the health bulletin, adding that, “Necessary respiratory support, antibiotics, nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy are being given.”
