"Tamil Nadu CM is getting better. Every day we're praying for Amma and we're happy as God helped us get our Amma hale and hearty," CR Saraswathi told ANI.

Tamil Nadu governor C Vidyasagar Rao on 11 October allocated the portfolios held by Jayalalithaa, to O Paneerselvam. However, Rao said Jayalalitha will continue to be the Chief Minister.
DMK Treasurer MK Stalin had last week demanded that the state government name an interim Chief Minister or a Deputy CM till Jayalalithaa returns.
Jayalalithaa (68), was admitted to Apollo hospital on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration.
Meanwhile, the hospital said she continued to be under treatment and was being constantly monitored.
