New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday ruled out the possibility of law and order problems in Tamil Nadu in the wake of the latest update on the health condition of Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.

"There is no issue of law and order. Law and order is not a concern yet," he told reporters.

Singh had last night spoken to Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao and enquired about the health of Jayalalithaa, who, according to Apollo Hospitals, "continues to be very critical," a day after suffering cardiac arrest.

She is on various life support systems, the hospital said.

Earlier today they had tweeted:

Meanwhile, a senior Home Ministry official said the central government was closely monitoring the situation in Tamil Nadu all efforts are being made to maintain law and order so that no untoward incident takes place.

The Home Ministry officials are in constant touch with the officials of Tamil Nadu government and assessing the situation, as per PTI.

As many as 900 personnel of Rapid Action Force (RAF) of CRPF have been put on stand-by to be immediately airlifted from various places in the country to Tamil Nadu, if needed, they said.

A near total shutdown-like situation prevailed in Chennai today with shops and other establishments downing shutters and office goers returning home early as CM Jayalalithaa's health condition continued to remain critical.

On the other hand, Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu, who has been camping in Tamil Nadu since today morning, apprised Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the latest health condition of Tamil Nadu CM.

Naidu, who met doctors from the Apollo hospital, where she is admitted and those from AIIMS who have been called in to treat the AIADMK chief, briefed the Prime Minister on the latest health condition of the 68-year-old chief minister, sources said.

Naidu also met top leadership of AIADMK, including party legislators, during the day, sources said.
