Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao visited Chief Minister Jayalalithaa for the second time at the Apollo Hospital in Chennai, where she has been admitted since September 22. His visit on Saturday comes twenty days after he last enquired about Jayalalithaa's health.
A press release issued by Raj Bhavan stated, "The Governor is happy to note that the Hon'ble Chief Minister is progressing well." It also added that the Governor visited the ward in which Jayalalithaa is being treated. It is unclear, however, if he interacted with the CM.
Governor Vidyasagar was briefed by Apollo Hospital Chairman Pratap Reddy about the treatment being given to the CM. The Governor's visit also comes a day after Apollo Hospital issued its latest bulletin on the Jayalalithaa's health. The Raj Bhavan released noted that the CM is "interacting and responding remarkably to the treatment."
The Governor was received by Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker Thambidurai, Finance Minister O Panneerselvam and other senior cabinet leaders and bureaucrats.
Jayalalithaa was admitted to the Apollo Hospital on Greams Road in Chennai on September 22 with complaints of "fever and dehydration." In its latest update on Friday, Apollo Hospital stated that the Chief Minister continues to be under treatment and observation for all vital parameters, respiratory support and passive physiotherapy.
