CHENNAI: The press statements about former CM J Jayalalithaa's health after she was admitted to Apollo hospital were issued keeping in mind the law and order situation, according to founder chairman of Apollo Hospitals Dr Prathap C Reddy.
"She was very close to everybody's heart. The advice to the doctors was 'Please don't say that she is serious because you will not be able to control the emotions of the people'," said Reddy while addressing a press conference here on Saturday. He said he has clarified the same on multiple instances before.
Reddy said that he cannot reveal more as an inquiry by Commission constituted under Justice A Arumughaswamy is going on.
To a query on whether he received any summons by the inquiry commission, Reddy said, "I have not. I don't know if my doctors have." He maintained that the team provided the best treatment for the late CM.
Yesterday, the Hospitals' Vice-Chairperson Preetha Reddy told a private Tamil channel in New Delhi that the former CM of Tamil Nadu was brought to the hospital in a breathless state and that she was given adequate treatment and recovered from it.
