Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa followers are waiting with bated breath as the Supreme Court will hear the bail petition of the former Tamil Nadu chief minister, who has been in a Bangalore jail for almost two weeks after she was convicted in a corruption case and sentenced to four years in jail.
The 66-year-old has sought bail on account of her age and health. She said she suffers from diabetes, hypertension, cellulitis and other ailments.
This will be the last chance for Jayalalithaa to get a bail before Diwali as the apex court will go on leave for a week after Friday.
In the meantime, it is also All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’s 43rd Foundation Day on Friday. It is likely to be a muted affair because of the party chief Jaya’s incarceration.
