The health of Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa has been the subject of feverish speculation on India, many speculated that CM J Jayalalithaa is indeed taken her last breath today morning.
The state government and her party, the AIADMK, have repeatedly quashed the rumors and the hospital she was admitted to on September 22, Apollo Hospital in Chennai, has issued repeated bulletins on her health.
But a shroud of secrecy surrounding her, silence on her ailment and a restriction on who can visit the chief minister have fuelled rumors and a political war-of-words. Even all AIADMK MLAs have been asked to sign a declaration making loyalist O Panneerselvam as successor.
AH COO Subbiah Viswanathan said the following in a press release. He stated that “She is being treated and monitored by a team of experts, including pulmonologists, cardiologists and critical care specialists.”
Whatever the case we least hope that rumor shrugged off soon.
