As Jayalalitha ails, Subramanian Swamy wants President's rule in Tamil Nadu

Swamy said the administrative chaos in Tamil Nadu had triggered the reactivation of ISIS and other disruptive groups in the state.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy urged union home minister Rajnath Singh to impose President’s rule in Tamil Nadu, citing ‘administrative disarray’ in the state.

Swmay’s letter has come in the wake of suspense surrounding chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s health condition.

Jayalalithaa is currently undergoing treatment after being hospitalised on September 22 due to dehydration and fever.

“During this ad hoc administative situation, there has been an activation of the sleeper cell of the ISIS in the districts of Ramanathapuram, Tirunveli, Madurai and Kanyakumari and a collaborative and supportive action by the Dravida Kazhagam, leftover LTTE, disruptive groups such as underground Naxalites to create upheaval in the state,” Swamy wrote.

Earlier, the Apollo Hospitals said Jayalalithaa was making gradual progress and will require longer stay in the hospital.
