Chennai, Oct 24: On Sunday, former Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy visited Apollo Hospitals in Chennai to enquire about the health condition of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

The 68-year-old AIADMK supremo is undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospitals, Greams Road in Chennai, since September 22.

Jayalalithaa is progressing well: Chandy

After his hospital visit, Chandy interacted with the media and said he discussed the health status of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister with doctors in the hospital.

The former Kerala Chief Minister, however, did not meet the incumbent Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu in the hospital.

"We are getting positive reports from the hospital on the health of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. I met the doctors and they explained everything to me. According to them, she is progressing very well...she will recover in a very short time," Chandy told reporters.

Chandy also wished Jayalalithaa a speedy recovery. In the last one month, several political leaders visited the hospital to enquire about Amma's medical condition, but hardly anyone had met the AIADMK supremo.

During their hospital visits, the dignitaries spoke to medical experts treating Jayalalithaa to find out about the Chief Minister's health status.

Few of the political heavyweights interacted with the media after their hospital visits and others updated the Janata (public) on Jayalalithaa's health on social media. Many have even preferred to remain silent on the issue.

Since almost a month now, several top leaders from various political parties, including Rahul Gandhi, Arun Jaitley and Amit Shah, had visited the hospital to enquire about the ailing Chief Minister's health.

AIADMK spokesperson CR Saraswathy said Jayalalithaa is progressing very well and would be home very soon. She said prayers by the people, cutting across caste and religious barriers, was also helping in the recovery of the Chief Minister.
