Government of Karnataka has decided this morning that it is going to appeal against the Disproportionate case verdict of Ms. Jayalalithaa in the Supreme court of India. Ms. Jayalalithaa on her acquittal has recently sworn in as the Tamil Nadu chief Minister for the fifth time, last week.
Speaking over the matter, the Karnataka Law Minister Mr. Jaya Chandra said that the government has taken a decision in this regard on the advice of the law department and the advocate general. He further added that the government will appeal in this case at the Supreme court as per the law.
” In such cases the government has the power to appeal with in 90 days, however we have decided to appeal in just 20 days or so” the law minister said the media.
Earlier, the advocate general of Karnataka blamed the government for its snail’s pace, in taking decision against the DA case appeal. He said that the Karnataka government has been provided the case with trust in its Judiciary and truthfulness and that it should be preserved at any cost. The supreme court has transferred the case from Tamil Nadu high court to the Karnataka special court in 2003, the NDTV reports.
The latest outcome might trouble Jayalalithaa, who is currently serving as the chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on acquittal. The high court of Karnataka acquitted her in the Disproportionate Assets case and thereafter releasing her.
