TUMKUR: Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister T B Jayachandra on Wednesday said the state government will consider shifting former chief minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, to a prison in that state if a proposal comes from the Tamil Nadu IGP (Prisons).
Speaking to reporters, he said that so far, there was no scope for shifting her to another place as the Karnataka High Court was hearing her bail application.“Now, if a proposal is made, all legal aspects and the pros and cons will be discussed. We will also discuss whether the approval of the High Court Chief Justice is required,” he said.
