BJP leader and Member of Parliament Subramanian Swamy tweeted on Wednesday that he has learnt Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s health is improving and she could be discharged soon. On Tuesday, he tweeted that Jayalalithaa’s consciousness was back and it was a miracle.

Jayalalithaa was admitted to Apollo hospital in Chennai on September 22 for fever and dehydration. Since then, Subramanian Swamy has been relentlessly tweeting about her health and the political situation in Tamil Nadu. He had initially tweeted that Jayalalithaa would be taken to Singapore to for treatment, but that turned out to be false. Later, the BJP leader asked Jayalalithaa to accept his piece of advice and go to Singapore.

On October 12, Subramanian Swamy had tweeted that the appointment of Panneerselvam as the person who would chair TN cabinet meetings was triggered by his demand for President’s rule.

Last month, Swamy had sought President’s rule in Tamil Nadu till the time Jayalalithaa resumes work. He had stated in a press release, “I urge the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh to invoke Article 356 of the Constitution, put the Legislative Assembly in suspended animation and impose the AFSPA in southern districts as well as in Chennai for a period of six months till Ms. Jayalalithaa is able to attend the office.”
