Swamy Decides To Appeal Against Jayalilthaa's Acquittal

Even as speculation mounts about when Jayalalithaa will don the Chief Minister’s mantle again, the original complainant in the disproportionate assets case, Bharatiya Janata Party MP Subramanian Swamy has announced that he intends to appeal against her acquittal.

Mr. Swamy, in a tweet, said he had “decided” to file a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court against her acquittal. In 1996, he had filed a criminal case against Ms. Jayalalithaa, claiming that she had, during her tenure as Chief Minister 1991-96, amassed wealth disproportionate to her income.

“I have decided to file SLP in SC after June 1st if Ktaka govt does not file. So no need to go to KHC” he tweeted on Thursday.

Two days ago he had similarly indicated that he would appeal against Karnataka High Court’s verdict: “In my Appeal to SC In JJ DA case. I will prove that the KHC judgment is a "tragedy of arithmetic errors". JJ will have to resign again if CM.”
