Jayalalithaa was first admitted to hospital on September 22, 2016, and party officials told that it had been done due to dehydration. But later, things became worse, and she was there in the ICU for many weeks. Last month, she was discharged from ICU and was staying in a specially equipped room.

Many Indian politicians, her well-wishers, and party workers are tweeting for her speedy recovery.
