Jayalalitha is well, recovering fast, God has given her good health: AIADMK

Chennai: Ruling AIADMK said on Sunday that its hospitalised General Secretary and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was "well" even as BJP MP Tarun Vijay visited Apollo Hospitals, where the 68 year-old leader is admitted.

"Amma (Jayalalithaa) is well. God has given her good health and we are very happy," AIADMK spokesperson CR Saraswathy told reporters.

Meanwhile, Vijay said Jayalalithaa was "recovering fast" and would resume work soon.

"I have specially brought holy water of lake Manasarovar of Mount Kailash for the Chief Minister. Amma is recovering very fast. Very soon (she will be) out of hospital and start working," he said.

Vijay said that the "prayers of millions of people are working and she will be very well."

Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration.

Later, the hospital had said she was being treated for infection with respiratory support, among others.

Specialists from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, and from London, among others, have treated her during the period.

On Friday, the hospital Chairman Pratap C Reddy had said that the Chief Minister had completely recovered and that it was upto her to decide when to go home.

Later, Vijay had handed over 'prasadam' meant for Jayalalithaa with senior AIADMK leader and Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha, M Thambidurai.

He gave a "special Prasadam from Kedarnath and holy water from Lake Manasarovar," a release from his office said.

It said he was told by the doctors attending on the Chief Minister that "she has recovered and in a day or two would be shifted to her private room in hospital."

"Vijay said that Uttarakhand people are specially thankful to her (Jayalalithaa) for her support to Thiruvalluvar Ganga Payanam (journey) and hence the special prayers were conducted for her health in Uttarakhand's various temples," it said.

Earlier, Jayalalithaa had voiced support to Vijay's efforts to install a statue of Tamil saint poet Thiruvalluvar on the banks of Ganga at Haridwar, which was reportedly opposed by some local sadhus.

She had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the issue after it emerged that the statue was reportedly lying
wrapped in a park there.
