Vijayan and Sathasivam also spoke with hospital CMD Prathap Reddy. "We met Dr Pathap Reddy and other doctors providing treatment to the Chief Minister. The specialists informed us that she was getting good response from the treatment," Sathasivam told reporters.

"And within a short period, she is likely to be discharged and it is possible for her to take charge of administration. We also pray for her speedy recovery," he added.

Vijayan said that they had come to "convey the collective good wishes of the people of Kerala."

Reddy told Bedi that Jayalalithaa was "under very good care and that she is progressing."
