Madras HC dismisses PIL on Jayalalitha’s health condition

October 6, 2016

Observing that it should not be used for “political purposes”, the Madras High Court today dismissed a PIL seeking a detailed report from the government on the health of Chief Minister J Jayalalitha
When the PIL came up, the first bench headed by Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul observed, “This forum should not be used for political purposes and it is a publicity interest litigation.”
“The hospital is already issuing health bulletins. PIL is dismissed,” the court said.
The petitioner “Traffic” Ramaswamy, a social activist, had submitted that the people of Tamil Nadu were eager to know about the health condition of Jayalalithaa.
The PIL also sought releasing of photographs of the meeting Jayalalithaa is said to have had with her cabinet colleagues and officials in the hospital.
The 68-year-old All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader was admitted to the ApolloHospital after she complained of fever and dehydration. Jayalalithaa, admitted at Apollo Hospitals since September 22, will now be examined by a three-member doctors team from theAll India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS).
According to reports, the three-member team — pulmonologist GC Khilnani, cardiologist Nitish Naik, and anesthetist Anjan Trikha — will examine her.
