Jayalalithaa not well? After DMK, TN Cong too wants to know Jaya's health status


Villupuram (TN), Jul 13: Days after DMK chief Karunanidhi sought to know the health status of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president E V K S Elangovan today appealed that information be disclosed in this regard.

"There may be political differences, but Jayalalithaa is the Chief Minister for all the people, hence everyone has a right to know about her health status," Elangovan told reporters here.

Jayalalithaa not well? After DMK, TN Cong too wants to know Jaya's health status.
"Hence, I appeal with concern, a medical bulletin on her health status should be released," he said. "I am worried, since she is the Chief Minister and that is why I appeal that the information be made known," he told PTI.

Elangovan is here to meet party workers as part of his statewide tour ahead of party vice-president Rahul Gandhi's visit to Tamil Nadu on July 23.

On July 2, Karunanidhi had said that the Tamil Nadu government should give details related to Jayalalithaa's illness as people would be interested in knowing the same. His remarks came a day after Jayalalithaa skipped an Iftar event hosted by her party citing sudden illness.

Her address was read out by Finance Minister O Pannerselvam in the Iftar party, in which she had said, "I am unable to come to the Iftar party due to a sudden illness though it is my wish to participate in it (organised by AIADMK) as usual."

Since then there has also been speculation in a section of media on her health status.
