Government will file appeal on Jaya case after report from law department: Siddaramaiah

Bengaluru: Even as AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa returned to power today (May 23) Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the state law department is examining the judgement of the High Court which acquitted her of all charges and the government would take a decision on filing an appeal in the case after receiving the report.

"Our law department is examining the judgement of Karnataka High Court. After getting the report from law department, we will decide," Siddaramaiah told reporters here.

Asked whether he has spoken to AICC in this regard, the chief minister said, "No, the High command is not at all interfering in the state matters".

Jayalalithaa was disqualified following her conviction in the Rs 66.66 crore disproportionate assets case by a trial court in Bengaluru on September 27. The Karnataka High Court had subsequently acquitted her of the charges on May 11 this year.

She was today sworn in for the fifth time as chief minister, nearly eight months after she was forced to quit over corruption charges.
