On September 22, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Puratchithalaivi Jayalalithaa was admitted to Chennai's Apollo Hospital after she suffered from high fever and dehydration. Prayers were offered across all the temples in the state for Amma's speedy recovery.
While Amma's fans and followers were worried about her health, the Apollo doctors issued a health bulletin assuring that Jayaa is doing fine and that she will be discharged after taking some days of rest.
However, rumours of Jayalalithaa passing away have rocked Tamil Nadu since this evening. These rumours further have it that an official announcement about Amma's death will be made at midnight tonight to ensure law and order doesn't go out of control.
Amma loyalists were in a deep shock and were painfully waiting for an official health bulletin from Apollo doctors announcing her health condition.
As the panic levels started to raise and tension began to intensify, the doctors have finally issued the much-awaited health bulletin stating that Amma responded to the treatment well and that she is doing absolutely fine and will be discharged in a few days. Millions of admirers of this 68-year-old iron lady heaved a huge sigh of relief.
