Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Thursday called on Tamil weekly magazine Thuglak’s Editor ‘Cho’ Ramaswamy, who has been hospitalised in Chennai and enquired about his health.

‘Cho’ Ramaswamy was admitted in Apollo hospital a few days ago here for respiratory related ailments.

Ms. Jayalalithaa called on him at the hospital and had a brief interaction with him and enquired about his health.

On August 7, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Chennai, he too had called on Mr. Cho at his residence.

Since January this year, Cho Ramaswamy has been in and out of hospital due to health issues.

A popular figure in Tamil Nadu, Mr. Ramaswamy was a noted comedian of yesteryears. A sharp political commentator, he is well known for his bold criticism in his Tamil magazine Thuglak. He is also a former Rajya Sabha member.
