The party late on Tuesday night reiterated that Jayalalithaa (68) would continue to be the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.


The statement was put on the party's official Twitter handle @AIADMKOfficial.

Amma (as the CM is popularly known to her fans) is undergoing treatment at Apollo Hospital at Greams Road, Chennai, since September 22.

The official statement on who is the real boss of the southern state holds great importance as it came just hours after Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao allocated the portfolios held by Jayalalithaa to Finance Minister O Paneerselvam.
