Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was admitted to Apollo hospitals in Chennai on Thursday evening.
A health bulletin released by the hospital after midnight said that the Chief minister was suffering from fever and dehydration. The hospital statement added that that Chief Minister was being kept under observation.
Multiple sources told The News Minute that the CM would be taken back to her residence, Poes Garden, before Friday morning. But the CM now remains admitted to the hospital and is likely to stay there for the rest of the day. The hospital statement made no mention of her discharge.
The 68 year old Chief Minister suffers from diabetes, hypertension and cellulitis. This was disclosed by her lawyers in her bail petition to the Karnataka High Court in 2014 after her conviction in the disproportionate assets case. The chief minister was taken to Apollo hospitals in Chennai's Greams Road in a special convoy and not in her usual one.
