Is Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa getting discharged from Apollo Hospitals in a week? The social media was abuzz with this piece of news on Wednesday after a senior of the IT wing of the AIADMK quoted UK expert Dr Richard Beale as saying this in his tweet. The tweet by Tamilarasan, district president of the AIADMK IT Wing of Kancheepuram West, quotes Dr Beale, who examined Ms Jayalalithaa at the Apollo Hospitals four times in less than a month, as saying that the Chief Minister will return home in a week.
“Chief Minister Amma will return home in a week, says Dr Richard Beale,” the tweet by Mr Tamilarasan says. The tweet has been given some credence with school education minister MaFoi K Pandiarajan and AIADMK IT wing secretary G Ramachandran retweeting it.
Mr Tamilarasan further tweeted that London-based Tamil Duraikannan and a few others had met Beale on Wednesday during when he made the comments. The Chief Minister was admitted to the Apollo Hospitals on September 22 and was treated by Dr Beale, experts from AIIMS and doctors of the hospital. Apollo Hospitals chairman Prathap C Reddy had on Friday last said that she has recovered and she would decide when to return home.
