Chennai: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa should apologise to the Kanchi Mutt seers after a Puducherry court acquitted them of murder charges.
Swamy visited the Mutt and received Swami Sri Jayendra Saraswati. In a huge relief to the pontiffs of the Mutt -- Jayendra Saraswathi and Vijayendra Saraswathi -- a Puducherry court on Wednesday acquitted them in the sensational case of murder of a temple official in Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu in 2004.
Swamy has consistently campaigned against Tamil Nadu government for allegedly foisting a false murder case against Acharyas.
Later, he met both the senior and junior Shankaracharyas separately. Talking to reporters at the Mutt, he said Jayalalithaa should apologise to the Acharyas.
