The BJP national president Amit Shah and Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who visited the Apollo Hospital in Chennai where AIADMK supremo and Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa is undergoing treatment, have reportedly briefed prime minister Narendra Modi about the treatments being given to her.
During their nearly 20 minute visit to the hospital on Wednesday, doctors explained to them about the nature of treatment being given to the Chief Minister.
Shah and Jaitley, who flew down from New Delhi together and reached the airport around 12.30 pm by an Air India flight, left the hospital without briefing the waiting media persons.
While they refused to give any statement, they made their visit public through Twitter.
“Visited Apollo hospital Chennai today. I wish J Jayalalithaa Ji, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu a speedy recovery, “said Arun Jaitley.
Amit Shah also took to twitter to wish speed recovery to Jayalalithaa. “Visited Apollo Hospital in Chennai to enquire about the health of Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa Ji. I wish and pray for her, “he tweeted.
Union Minister of Urban Development M. Venkaiah Naidu had visited the hospital on Sunday. All India Congress Committee vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Puducherry CM V. Narayanasamy and Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan are among the dignitaries who visited Apollo in the past five days.
