A public interest litigation (PIL) petition was filed at the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court asking the Central and State governments to nationalise the assets of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa and appoint a retired High Court judge to administer the properties.

The PIL petition was filed by Tamil Nadu Centre for Public Interest Litigation, a non-governmental organisation. The petitioner listed all the properties of Jayalalithaa along with the petition, and stated that all her properties should be taken over by the State government and the income derived from them should be utilised for people’s welfare. A Division Bench of Justices A. Selvam and P. Kalaiyarasan are expected for hearing the case.

On December 15, 2016, NGO’s managing trustee KK Ramesh had made a representation to the Centre and the State governments, asking for the total value of the properties owned by Jayalalithaa and also to appoint a commission headed by retired High Court judge.
