Loksatta Party welcomes today’s judgment convicting Ms. Jayalalitha in the disproportionate asset case. The party feels that this conviction will instill fear among corrupt politicians and is a right step in cleansing politics.
The verdict will increase the faith of judiciary among the general public. However it took 18 long years to finish the trial and appeals might take few more years. This inordinate delay is clearly because of political intervention in the case investigation and adds merit to Loksatta’s demand for an independent investigation agency and police reforms.
The party would like to reiterate its demand for special courts for high profile cases and cases which deals with huge amount of corruption amount.
