Jayalalithaa’s condition very critical: Apollo Hospital

CHENNAI: Jayalalithaa’s health still in a dwindling state and “continues to be very critical” said a press statement from Apollo Hospital where she’s been admitted since September 22.

AIADMK’s Chief J. Jayalalithaa has been in critical condition after suffering a cardiac arrest while in hospital yesterday; she’s been in hospital since September 22 and doctors had said yesterday that she had made a full recovery.

Separately, a central minister told a television channel in New Delhi that Jayalalithaa “is out of danger”.

“She is out of danger but she needs ICU care,” Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda told the TV news channel.

In the wake of tense situation in Tamil Nadu over AIADMK chief’s ailing condition, Karnataka State Road Transport has stopped all 470 bus services between the two states from Monday morning. Officials in the corporation said they will wait and watch the law and order situation on the border and for a green signal from the police to send their buses to Tamil Nadu.

The ailing Tamil Nadu chief minister is in Apollo Hospital in Chennai. There’s a huge police presence in and outside the hospital. Hundreds of supporters of Jayalalithaa – and their numbers are swelling – have been gathered outside Apollo Hospital in Chennai, since news broke yesterday about the deterioration in her condition.

Police and CRPF have been deployed throughout Chennai and in Tamil Nadu as administrators fear a law and order problem, what with Jaya supporters known to self-immolate and with no clear news yet of who will take the CM’s place in case he condition deteriorates even further.
