In a bid to put speculations surrounding the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa to rest, the TN government on March 6 announced that the health reports of Jayalalithaa will be made public today. Jayalalithaa passed away at the age of 68 late on 5th December 2016, Chennai, after failing to recover from a cardiac arrest that she suffered.
The All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) have reportedly submitted the health reports to the Tamil Nadu government and on March 6, to the current Chief Minister of the state E. Palaniswamy led govt who announced that the reports will be available for the public viewing very soon.
As per the reports published in the IANS, “According to the authorities, the papers were handed over by V. Srinivas, AIIMS Deputy Director (Administration), to J. Radhakrishnan, Principal Secretary of Tamil Nadu’s health department.”
There were several suspicions over the death of one of the most loved leaders of the state. Her silent treatment and lack of updates about her health had already raised a lot of eyebrows. This mysterious question had given some substance to those allegations and doubts.
Earlier on February 6, the doctors cleared the air over her death. Jayalalithaa’s doctor Richard Beale addressed media saying, “Best treatment was given to Amma, but she suffered with severe diabetes and had sepsis when in ICU. She suffered infection which led to organ failure.
“Complication not conspiracy has killed Amma. Her health declined unexpectedly,” Beale added.
