Speculations are flying fast and thick over the deteriorating health condition of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. According to sources, the AIADMK supremo, who is taking treatment at a private hospital for various health issues, is in a serious condition.
With the hospital authorities refusing to release any information about her condition to the media, lots of ifs and buts are doing rounds about Jaya’s latest health ‘condition’. The doctors, who used to release daily medical bulletin about TN CM’s health initially, have suddenly become reluctant which is leading to widespread speculations over her failing health.
The Apollo Hospital, where Jaya is taking treatment, resembles a virtual fortress with police personnel all over the place. Even the media representatives are not allowed anywhere near the hospital.
Taking a dig at a news item that Jaya held a meeting on Cauvery row at the hospital on Friday, DMK supremo and former chief minister of Tamil Nadu M Karunanidhi asked, “If it is true, let them release the picture. Why are they not doing it?”
Even on Saturday, Karunanidhi reiterated that the authorities need to act fast or else, their silence would lead to lot of confusion among the public.
Even as doubts over Jaya’s health are leading to all kinds of rumours, doctors from London have arrived in Chennai. With the authorities playing hide and seek over Jaya’s health, rumours are spreading like wildfire that Jaya may be no more, though Tamil Nadu have strongly denied.
