Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is under observation and absolutely fine, said AIADMK's CR Saraswathy on Thursday.

According to ANI, Saraswathy said that the chief minister will be discharged soon and start her regular duty. She urged people to refrain from spreading rumours about her health on social media.

Even on Wednesday night, Saraswathy had told NDTV that "Amma is well, she is hale and hearty." Even from the hospital, she held meeting with party officials over the Cauvery dispute. She also criticised Karnataka's withholding of Cauvery water on Thursday.

She was admitted to Apollo Hospitals on 20 September after complaining of fever and dehydration. She was kept under observation, but the hospital had issued a statement on 24 September saying, "The Chief Minister is responding well to the treatment and continues to get better. As part of ongoing recuperation, she has been advised few more days of rest."

According to PTI, she is on a normal diet. She has no fever, but is under observation.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had sent her a bouquet of flowers, wishing her a speedy recovery. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan too had wished for her quick recovery.

Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao in a letter to Jayalalithaa had said: "It is worrying to learn that you are indisposed and hospitalised due to fever. My best wishes."
