"Chief Minister Amma [Jayalalithaa] is very well. She has come [back] to her normal life; is eating well. She is ably doing her political work. Physiotherapy is continuing for her," party spokesperson CR Saraswathy said.

Speaking to reporters here, she said Jayalalithaa "will return home soon".

The 68 year-old chief minister, who was admitted to Apollo Hospitals here on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration, had been treated for infection among other health issues.

Apollo Hospitals Chairman Pratap Reddy had last week said that Jayalalithaa, who had been given respiratory support, was doing well and speaking using a valve attached to the tracheostomy tube.

He had also said Jayalalithaa was undergoing a "normal recuperation" after being in bed for several weeks and it is she who would decide when to return home.
