Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s disowned foster son V.N. Sudhakaran was on Thursday denied entry into the Apollo Hospitals where she is under treatment. He waited in his car for over one hour before leaving the place.
Sudhakaran arrived in a sports utility vehicle around 5.45 p.m. Seated on the front passenger seat, he was seen making multiple calls from his cell phone in an attempt to enter the hospital. However, he was denied entry into the hospital by some personnel posted there. Around 6.50 pm, seeing some AIADMK cadres conversing with policemen, his supporters asked his driver to leave the venue.
As media cameramen mobbed his vehicle, police intervened and pushed them back allowing Sudhakaran to leave.Earlier, Arputhammal, the mother of A.G. Perarivalan, a life convict in the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi assassination case visited the hospital.
According to her, ministers whom she met at the hospital had told her that Ms. Jayalalithaa was recovering well and she appealed to journalists not to ask visitors if they had seen the Chief Minister.“She will come back stronger and greet us all with her pleasing smile,” she said(THE HINDU,2016).
