Mumbai: Free Parking to End, Govt Lifts Stay on BMC Policy

Sasikala's swearing-in as Tamil Nadu CM: SC Rejects Hearing of Plea

An urgent hearing of a PIL trying to stall party general secretary VK Sasikala from taking oath as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has been refused by the Supreme Court on Friday. The hearing has been declined by the Apex court till the decision on Sasikala's disproportionate assets case comes.

The top court will be delivering its judgment within a week on the appeals against acquittal of late chief minister J Jayalalithaa in a corruption case, in which Sasikala is also a co-accused. This might not be a very good news for Sasikala if she is found guilty.
