Finance minister Arun Jaitley and BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday visited Apollo hospital where Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa is recuperating.
They spent 30 minutes in the hospital and enquired about the treatment given to 68-year-old Jayalalithaa. They did not interact with the media.
“Visited Apollo hospital Chennai today. I wish J Jayalalithaa Ji, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu a speedy recovery”, Jaitley posted on Twitter.
Shah too posted on Twitter, saying, “Visited Apollo Hospital in Chennai to enquire about the health of Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa Ji. I wish and pray for her speedy recovery.”
Former Puducherry chief minister N Rangasamy also visited the hospital earlier in the day. “I pray for her speedy recovery,” he told reporters.
The AIADMK supremo was admitted to the hospital on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration.
