Tamil Nadu state especially the premises of Apollo hospitals are kept under the surveillance of paramilitary forces to maintain law and order.
Why Late Announcement About Jayalalitha Death:
Jaya television’s subsidiary channel Jaya Plus allegedly broadcasting a slide announcing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s death kept social media buzzing through late Monday evening. The hospital management released a health bulletin stating the health condition of Jayalalitha.
This is done to stop the rumors circulated in social media and the most popular TV Channels. The government stopped the broadcasting of all the news channels in Tamil Nadu state to stop the chaos about Jayalalitha death news.
Regional channels in Tamil Nadu started broadcasting news on Jayalalithaa’s death which led to confusion and minor incidents of violence. Only hours earlier in the evening, the hospital had denied reports that Jayalalithaa had died as “baseless and false” when TV channels said she was no more.
