Chennai: Expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa has said that people want to know whether Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa is alive or not.
Sasikala Pushpa also demanded that PM Narendra Modi must intervene into the Jayalalithaa's health.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was on Monday said to be critical after she suffered a cardiac arrest on Sunday evening in the hospital where she was admitted over two months ago.
Apollo Hospitals, in a tweet late last night, said doctors were closely monitoring Jayalalithaa's condition and trying their "very best".
"Our doctors are closely monitoring Hon'ble CM's condition and they are trying their very best," Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals, tweeted.
68-year-old Jayalalithaa is "critical", she said in an earlier tweet, adding that the AIADMK chief was on extracorporeal membrane heart assist device and being treated by a team of expert doctors and critical care specialists.
Security has been beefed up across the state.
Jayalalithaa was hospitalised on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration.
