Chennai, 21 Oct : Ailing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa is interacting and gradually progressing, Apollo Hospitals, where she is admitted, said on Friday.
The hospital said she continues to be under treatment and observation for all vital parameters, respiratory support and passive physiotherapy.
The Chief Minister “is interacting (with people) and progressing gradually”, said a medical bulletin, the first issued after a 11-day gap.
The 68-year-old Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital for fever and dehydration on September 22.
Doctors later said she needed a longer stay at the hospital as she had infection and was put on respiratory support.
According to Apollo Hospitals, a team of specialists like cardiologists, respiratory physicians, consultants for infectious diseases, diabetologist and endocrinologist is treating Jayalalithaa.
AIADMK leaders, including C. Ponnaian, have told the media that Jayalalithaa was talking to people and even sat up.
He said the AIADMK chief would be home in a few days.
Nothing wrong with eggs produced in Bengal: Mamata
Kharagpur (West Bengal), 3 April 2017 : Allaying fears of the public over the “artificial eggs” issue, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday said a probe is on in the matter but exhorted the public to consume eggs produced in the state without any apprehension.
“I had a discussIon with the Bengal poultry foundation. I have given them the responsibility to label eggs produced in Bengal. Bengal produces 80 lakh eggs. There is no problem with eggs produced in Bengal. Just check that they should be Bengal eggs.
“We are investigating the eggs that have come from outside. Preliminary reports say there is nothing objectionable. We will do three or four additional investigations. Also, please remember eggs can be of different varieties,” she said at a public meeting here.
The artificial eggs controversy came to light after a woman lodged a police complaint alleging she was sold “fake eggs” that had a strange “plastic-like quality” when they were spread out on a pan.
A shopkeeper was arrested in connection with the case.
The Trinamool Congress supremo said action will be taken if something is discovered.
“I asked about plastic eggs… Whether its correct thing or not… I want to find out. If there is any truth in the matter, then I will take action. I asked whether costs would increase in case of plastic eggs and the poultry federation said plastic eggs would cost more than regular ones,” Banerjee said, stressing eggs also spoil in the heat and may emanate a foul odour and seem different.
“Don’t distort or misinform my friends (in the eggs issue). We will become self-sufficient in egg production. We will set up poultries for ducks like we have for hens,” she said.
She also took potshots at the Communist Party of India-Marxist that had attacked her government over the Maggi controversy in 2015. Following reports that certain batches of the popular noodles had higher-than-permissible levels of lead, the Bengal government had launched its own tests, which revealed the absence of any unwanted substances.
“Do you remember what happened over the Maggi controversy? Investigations showed there were no complaints. CPI-M accused us of taking bribe. We are not greedy. Then what happened later? Aren’t people eating Maggi now ? So let there be a counter-probe then,” she added.
Verdict in Jayalalithaa corruption case likely next week: SC
New Delhi, 6 Feb 2017 : The Supreme Court is likely to pronounce next week its verdict on the Karnataka’s plea challenging the state High Court’s acquittal of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, her close aide V.K. Sasikala and two others in a corruption case.
A bench headed by Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose said: “Wait till next week” as senior counsel Dushyant Dave, appearing for Karnataka, said that the main accused has already passed away and another accused V.K. Sasikala is expected to become Chief Minister soon.
The appeal was heard by a bench of Justice Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy and it had reserved its verdict on June 7, 2016.
The Karnataka government had appealed against the High Court’s May 11, 2015 verdict acquitting Jayalalithaa, Sasikala, her two relatives V.N. Sudhakaran and Elavarasi for allegedly amassing disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs 66.65 crores during Jayalalithaa’s first term as Chief Minister (1991-1996).
Acquitting Jayalalithaa, Sasikala and two others, it had reversed the September 27, 2014 trial court judgment which had sentenced Jayalalithaa to four years in jail and imposed a Rs 100 crore fine after a trial lasting for 18 years.
