Ruling AIADMK on Wednesday said party supremo and Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, hospitalised here since last month, is “very well” and would return home soon, even as scores of party workers continue to hold mass prayer sessions for her speedy recovery.

She said the prayers of party supporters has reaped fruits and thanked the medical experts from AIIMS and Singapore among others who treated the 68 year-old leader.
