With Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa hospitalised for the past two weeks, Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao on Friday called two senior ministers and Chief Secretary P Ramamohana Rao and discussed the day-to-day administration and affairs of the government.
The Governor enquired “about the general administration of the affairs of the government,” a Raj Bhavan release said. “The Chief Secretary to Government briefed Honourable Governor about the administrative affairs that are being carried out on a day-to-day basis and also other general matters,” it said.
Jayalalithaa’s trusted lieutenant and Finance Minister O Panneerselvam and his cabinet colleague Edappadi K Palaniswami also met the Governor at the Raj Bhavan where he enquired with them about the health condition of the Chief Minister, it said.
Although the Governor had visited Apollo Hospital, where Jayalalithaa was admitted on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration, on October 1, this was the first time he has held consultations with the senior ministers and the Chief Secretary since she was hospitalised.
