Karunanidhi asks TN govt to release photos of Jayalalithaa

Submitted by alvin on Fri, 2016-09-30 19:20 Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi has asked the Tamil Nadu government to put an end to rumours surrounding Jayalalithaa’s health by releasing her photograph from the Apollo hospital, where she has been receiving treatment for fever and dehydration for a week now. According to reports, the former TN CM in a statement has also demanded the state governor ensure a transparent system to inform people about Jayalalithaa’s actual health status. In his statement, Karunanidhi wanted to know as to why no photos had been released of the CM when such a practice existed. “There were also reports that she had met officials and leaders in the hospital to discuss on Cauvery issue and that she herself ‘dictated’ the statement on Cauvery issue for the meeting held in Delhi. When there was a practice of issuing photographs of such meetings earlier, no such photos of her meeting in the hospital were released so far. Many of her cadres and followers remain upset about her actual health status. Still no concerned people have taken an effort to release her photo from the hospital,” he said. According to reports, the AIADMK has slammed rumours surrounding Jayalalithaa. On the issue of releasing photos, the party said the photos couldn’t be released as there was no permission from the doctors to do so. According to the bulletin released by Apollo on Thursday night, the TN CM was said to be responding well to the treatment.
