In an unusual gesture, DMK Chief M Karunanidhi’s wife Rajathi Ammal visited Apollo Hospital on Thursday night to inquire after Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s health. Ammal met Sasikala Natarajan, Jayalalithaa’s close aide, at the hospital around 7.30 pm on Thursday, confirmed sources close to the AIADMK and the DMK. While the office of Karunanidhi refused to confirm the news, party sources said Ammal had been waiting for the green signal to meet Sasikala.
A few days back, MK Stalin, leader of the opposition and son of Karunanidhi, visited the hospital to enquire about Jaya’s health.
Meanwhile, former governor K Rosaiah visited the Apollo hospital on Friday evening and spoke to the doctors on Jaya’s state of health. Rosiah was the governor for most of the time Jaya has been the CM.
