Madras High Court Asks Tamil Nadu Government To Submit Details About Jaya’s Health By Wednesday

Nearly two weeks after the hospitalisation of AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, the opposition continued to raise questions on who is running the government in absence of the CM. The matter was finally taken to the Madras High Court by a petitioner, Traffic Ramaswamy, a social activist, on Tuesday.

The case was not listed for the day but Ramaswamy prayed to the court to consider it claiming it was an urgent matter. Hearing his demand to the government to reveal Jayalalithaa’s actual health status, the government pleader argued that there is no urgency to hear the case since the hospital is releasing health bulletins on a daily basis.
