Official Release on CM’s Health Will Reduce Anxiety: HC

Apollo Hospitals, Chennai - Sakshi Post

Chennai: Official release with regard to the health condition of Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, who has been undergoing treatment at a hospital since September 22, will reduce the anxiety of the people, the Madras High Court observed on Tuesday while asking the government to get back on the issue by Wednesday.

The oral observation was made by a division bench while hearing a PIL by social activist 'Traffic' Ramaswamy, who has sought a detailed report from the government on the health condition of Jayalalithaa. The court asked Tamil Nadu's Additional Advocate General C Manishankar to get back to it after consulting the government on the health condition of the chief minister by Wednesday. Manishankar told the court that the corporate hospital had been issuing medical bulletins daily on her health conditions and describing the treatments given to her.

But the court said though the hospital was releasing bulletins, being the chief minister of the state, some official release with regard to her health condition will reduce the anxiety of the people. The petition has also sought release of photographs of the meeting she is said to have had with her cabinet colleagues and officials in the hospital. The bench said that it is not passing any order on the PIL but directed the additional advocate general to consult the government on the matter.
