Amidst speculation of Jayalalithaa’s health after the Apollo Hospital in Chennai issued a medical bulletin saying she suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday evening and is being treated now, political leaders have wished her a speedy recovery. The report of the hospital came hours after AIADMK claimed an AIIMS expert team had confirmed that she had completely recovered after over two months of hospitalisation.

“The honourable Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, who is undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospitals, suffered a cardiac arrest this evening. She is being treated and monitored by a team of experts, including cardiologists, pulmonologist and critical care specialists,” Chief Operating Officer and head of transformation of Apollo Hospital Dr Subbaiah Viswanathan said in the bulletin.

Heavy police force deployment has been seen outside Apollo hospital in Chennai as huge crowd gather after hearing about Jayalalithaa’s cardiac arrest.

During the 10-minute telephonic conversation, Rao briefed Singh about the health condition of the Chief Minister and conveyed that doctors attending to her were taking all necessary steps.

DMK President M Karunanidhi wished a speedy recovery of Jayalalithaa. Leader M K Stalin also tweeted for the hospitalised Chief Minister.

“I desire that the intensive treatment being given to the Chief Minister yields fruit and that she recovers soon,” he said in a tweet.

Other leaders wished the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister a speedy recovery on Twitter.
