Madras High Court Dismisses Petition Seeking Photographs Of Jayalalithaa In Hospital

The Madras High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition seeking ‘real facts’ on the health of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, observing that the petition was meant for publicity.

The case came up for hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice R Mahadevan said it was not a public interest petition. Adding that the petition was filed for publicity and for political reasons, the court said the petitioner seeking a photographic proof of Jayalalithaa from the hospital is also not justified.

    At times the court also behaves childishly and the person who had filed is known for raising such PIL's in the best interest of the General Public and there is nothing wrong to know about the health condition of the CM who rules the State and instead of clarifying they are raising more confusion in the minds of the public and what is the necessity to hide the details from the Public is the ???

    One cell phone call from the hospital will quiet enough to change court rules or any decision against her.
