A day after getting bail from Supreme Court in disproportionate assets case, AIADMK supremo and former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa walked out of Parappana Agrahara Central Prison on Saturday.
Karnataka Government will have no objection to shift AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa to Tamil Nadu from a jail here if the neighbouring state makes a request through courts, Home Minister K J George said on Monday.
DMK on Thursday continued its attack on arch rival AIADMK, with a party MLA petitioning Assembly Secretary to notify the Srirangam assembly constituency, represented by former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, as vacant in the wake of her disqualification as MLA following the four-year jail term awarded to her in a graft case.
Soon after the Karnataka High Court denied bail for Jayalalithaa, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Paneerselvam on Tuesday appealed to people not to resort to strike or any other form of protest to express solidarity with the AIADMK chief as she would not like to cause inconvenience to the common man.
Reacting to the Karnataka High Court's decision to reject former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa bail plea, senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday said he was not surprised by the court's decision.
Clad in black outfit, AIADMK MLAs on Saturday staged a day-long fast here as protests against party chief J Jayalalithaa's conviction in an illegal assets case continue state-wide with a dawn-to-dusk bandh in the neighbouring union territory of Puducherry passing off peacefully.
AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa is not getting VIP treatment, but being looked after as any other ordinary prisoner at the Parapanna Agrahara Central prison where she is lodged after conviction in the disproportionate assets case, according to a top jail official.
As many as 18 firms were formed in the 1991-96 period only with a view to siphoning off the "unlawful resources" accumulated by then Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, the special court in the disproportionate assets case against her and three others has held.
AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa is keeping good health and eating simple food besides reading newspapers at the Parapanna Agrahara Central prison where she is lodged after conviction in the disproportionate assets case, according to a jail official.
