Former Tamil Nadu governor, K Rosaiah visited the CM on Friday. A report from The Hindu quoted him as saying, “I have come here to see Madam Jayalalithaa. She is responding to the treatment being given by the doctors. I hope this treatment will be completed in a few days and she will recover from all ailments. This is not only my prayer, but the prayer of thousands of people. So, I am sure God will respond and will give her good health.”

A critical care expert Dr. Richard Beale, Nitish Naik, professor of cardiology, AIIMS along with his colleagues G.C. Khilnani, professor of pulmonary medicine, and Anjan Trikha, professor of anaesthesiology and critical care were back on Thursday to review Jayalalithaa’s condition.

Several top politicians, including BJP president Amit Shah, union finance minister Arun Jaitley, DMK leader MK Stalin and Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala have visited Apollo Hospital on Greams road in downtown Chennai.
