Chennai: AIADMK leader and former Tamil Nadu speaker P H Pandian on Thursday raised doubts on Former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s hospitalization on September 22 last year. He alleged that she was pushed by someone in her Poes garden residence which led to her getting admitted in Apollo hospitals.
“Amma (Jayalalithaa) fell down after someone pushed her. Nobody knows what happened to Amma after that. A police official called an ambulance, and she was taken to hospital,” Pandian said while speaking to reporters at former chief minister O Panneerselvam’s residence here.
Pandian added that more than 27 CCTV cameras were removed from Apollo Hospitals after Jayalalithaa was hospitalised. The hospital management should come up with an explanation.
He said Jayalalithaa died at 4.30pm on December 4 but the hospital announced that she died only on December 5. Pandian wanted to know which family member had given the permission to stop medical treatment to Jayalalithaa.
Asked from where he had got the info, he said, “I have my sources. I am conducting investigations on my own.”
“There are several doubts in the treatment given to Amma. Being a chief minister, she was under SPG security. Was her food checked as per the SPG Act and why were they not allowed in the hospital,” asked Pandian.
“Apollo Hospitals has several physiotherapists. Why were physiotherapists brought from a Singapore hospital to treat Jayalalithaa,” he asked.
Jayalalithaa’s thumb impression was taken for the A form and B form for the AIADMK candidates who filed their nominations for the byelections in three constituencies. “Did they take her thump impressions on any other document? Doctors or people who were with her should answer,” said Pandian.
He said a para-ambulance helicopter was waiting at Chennai airport in June 2015 to take Jayalalithaa to Singapore for treatment. But what was preventing her to get shifted, he asked.
