Tamil Nadu chief minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, undergoing treatment at a hospital here, is back to her normal life and would return home soon, the party said on Tuesday.
“Chief minister Amma (Jayalalithaa) is very well. She has come (back) to her normal life; is eating well. She is ably doing her political work. Physiotherapy is continuing for her,” party spokesperson CR Saraswathy said.
Speaking to reporters, she said Jayalalithaa “will return home soon”.
The 68 year-old was admitted to Apollo Hospitals on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration, and was treated for several health issues, details of which were never clarified.
Apollo Hospitals chairman Pratap Reddy had last week said that the chief minister, who had been given respiratory support, was doing well and speaking using a valve attached to a tracheostomy tube.
He had also said Jayalalithaa was undergoing a “normal recuperation” after being in bed for several weeks and it is was up to her to decide when to return home.
