Chennai: Hours after AIADMK said that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister would soon resume her duties, Jayalalithaa suffered cardiac arrest on Sunday evening.

She is being treated and her health is being monitored by experts, including, cardiologists, pulmonologist and critical care specialists.

The news was confirmed by party's official Twitter page, which also tweeted Apollo Hospitals' press release.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh spoke to Tamil Nadu Governor C Vidyasagar Rao regarding her health. Also, Union Health Minister JP Nadda spoke to Apollo Chairman and enquired about Tamil Nadu CM's health.

On the other hand, President Pranab Mukherjee tweeted:

Just few hours back, AIADMK had said that AIIMS experts had confirmed that Jayalalithaa had "completely recovered" and would return home soon.

 "The AIIMS doctors visited the hospital yesterday and after examining her (Jayalalithaa's) health, they shared the good news with us that Amma (meaning mother as Jayalalithaa is fondly called by AIADMK cadres) has completely recovered," party spokesperson C Ponnaiyan had told reporters, as per PTI.

Ponnaiyan had added that Jayalalithaa was doing "physical exercises" and was eating food on her own and advising officers on issues related to government and party activities.

"Specialists from Mount Elizabeth hospital (Singapore) are also providing physiotherapy to her," he had said.

The 68-year-old AIADMK supremo was admitted on September 22.

She had complained of fever and dehydration.

The hospital had been issuing bulletins on her health status and had said that the Tamil Nadu CM was being treated for infection.

Earlier, on November 13, the official Twitter handle of AIADMK had issued a statement by Jayalalithaa wherein she had said, "I have taken a rebirth with the prayers of party cadres and people. What can harm me when I have your love. I am waiting to completely recover and resume my work for people."
