Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Oct.9 (ANI): Information and Broadcasting Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday urged people to refrain from spreading rumours about Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's health as she is responding well to the treatment.

"I had a detailed briefing by doctors about the treatment. They told me that she is responding to the treatment, and I am confident that she will be normal and she is improving. It's not fair on the part of anybody to make any speculation or spread any rumours, particularly when the person is undergoing treatment. It is expected by everybody to see that we all maintain balance and also restrain while making comments," Naidu said while visiting the Chief Minister at Apollo Hospital here.

He said that he is keeping track of the medical bulletin which is being released regularly by the hospital management. He also expressed hoped that 65-year-old leader would become normal and once again work for the people of Tamil Nadu.

Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration.

Apart from Naidu, Tamil Nadu Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, BJP state president Tamilisai Sounderarajan, DMK leader M.K. Stalin and CPI (M) leader D. Raja have so far paid visits to the Chief Minister. (ANI)
