Chennai, Oct 15: It is not everyday that members of the warring political parties-AIADMK and DMK---in Tamil Nadu are seen together like friends. At a time when Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is unwell, members of the two parties are meeting too often.
Days after DMK leader MK Stalin visited Apollo Hospital in Chennai, where the CM is undergoing treatment, DMK president M Karunanidhi's wife Rajathi Ammal visited the hospital to enquire about Jayalalithaa's health on Thursday.
During her hospital visit, Rajathi Ammal also met the CM's friend and trusted advisor Sasikalaa Natarajan. Reports say Rajathi Ammal's daughter and Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi are also likely to visit the hospital soon.
"Rajathi Ammal wished the chief minister a speedy recovery," said a DMK leader.
DMK treasurer and the Leader of the Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, Stalin, visited the hospital and talked to the doctors there regarding Jayalalithaa's health condition last week.
"We have been told that her condition is improving. Our wishes on behalf of the DMK and our party chief Kalaignar (M Karunanidhi) for a speedy recovery and resumption of her work," he told reporters after the visit to the hospital.
The 68-year-old AIADMK supremo is undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospital at Greams Road, Chennai, since September 22. Her supporters are constantly praying for Jayalalithaa's speedy recovery.
The hospital said she continued to be under treatment and was being constantly monitored by intensivists and other consultants in the expert panel, while respiratory support, antibiotics, nutrition, supportive therapy and passive physiotherapy were being given to her.
