Rajnath Singh calls on TN governor, enquires about Jayalalithaa

Following the news that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa  has suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday evening Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Tamil Nadu Governor Ch. Vidyasagar Rao to enquire about her health.

According to reports, during the 10 minutes conversation, Rao briefed Singh about the health condition of the Chief Minister and conveyed that doctors attending to her were taking all necessary steps.


The 68-year-old leader suffered the cardiac arrest hours after AIADMK said that Jayalalithaa will return home “soon” as an AIIMS expert team confirmed she has completely recovered after over two months of hospitalisation.

Jayalalitha was hospitalised on 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration. The hospital, which had been issuing bulletins on her health status, had later said she was being treated for infection with respiratory support, among others.

Apollo Hospitals Chairman Dr C Prathap Reddy had recently said Jayalalitha was in good health and was speaking using a valve attached to the tracheostomy tube.

Whole body physiotherapy was being done, he had said, adding that she was normally recuperating after being in bed for several weeks and would herself decide when to go home.

Earlier in the day, AIADMK spokesperson C Ponnaiyan had told reporters that a three-member expert team from AIIMS, Delhi, had said she had completely recovered.
