Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy today indicated that he could file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the acquittal of AIADMK leader J Jayalalithaa in a disproportionate assets case by the Karnataka High Court.

“In my appeal to SC In JJ (J Jayalalithaa) disproportionate assets case I will prove that the KHC (Karnataka High Court) judgement is a ‘tragedy of arithmetic errors’. JJ will have to resign again if CM,” he tweeted.

The acquittal had cleared the decks for Jayalalithaa to become Chief Minister again.

Swamy is the original complainant in the case.

He had filed a case in 1996 against Jayalalithaa alleging that during her tenure as Chief Minister from 1991 to 1996, she amassed properties disproportionate to her known sources of income.

The DMK government subsequently filed a slew of cases, including the Rs 66.65 crore disproportionate assets case, against Jayalalithaa which led to her conviction in September last by a special court.

The Karnataka High Court acquitted Jayalalithaa yesterday.

    There is news that judgement is wrong in arithmetics. If true, the judge should be dismissed as incapable.

      Dr. Swamy should appeal against the suspension of sentence of Salman Khan by HC. 2. He should also see rampant corruption prevailing in many media agencies who evades taxes in crores and take up the issue.

        Now that High Court has fully bared & exposed its legal loops to free JJ, Swamyji will be well-armed with his arguments. We can look forward to the final onslaught of apt judgement.

          Why Dr. Swamy always, better you appeal. He did many cases against corruption. Of course you may not have the courage so you want Dr. Swamy to bell the cat.
