The plight of the Indian women politicians is to be felt to be believed. They may be worshipped as Laxmi, Saraswati and Durga inside the house but the treatment meted out to them while on election campaigns is just atrocious.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was hearing the appeal of Apollo Hospitals against the April 4 order of the Madras High Court rejecting its objection against the ongoing inquiry into the death of the AIADMK leader at the hospital.
The Apollo Hospitals had petitioned the commission in December 2018 to rope in 21 specialists and set up a medical board to examine the voluminous medical records related to the 75-day hospitalisation of Jayalalithaa.
Documents submitted by Apollo Hospital before the inquiry commission probing the death of the former chief minister reveal that the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam has paid most of the bill, with the small matter of Rs 44.46 lakh left to be settled.
