AIADMK celebrates Jayalalithaa’s bail

Chennai:  AIADMK cadres erupted in joy Friday after the Supreme Court gave bail to jailed former Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalithaa.

“It is Diwali day for us,” a party cadre said outside the AIADMK headquarters here.

The bail for Jayalalithaa comes on a day when the AIADMK celebrates its 43rd anniversary.

AIADMK cadres – men and women – assembled outside the party headquarters here danced in joy. They burst crackers and distributed sweets.

A special court Sep 27 convicted Jayalalithaa for corruption and jailed her for four years. She was also fined Rs.100 crore. Since then, she is in the Bangalore Central Jail.
