Supreme Court today criticised Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha for a series of defamation cases filed by her, against the media and her opponents. As a public figure and being Chief Minister for six years, Jayalalitha should by now have become immune to criticism, it said. It is not democratic to file defamation cases for small criticisms by media or political opponents, it said. Jayalalitha had filed 55 defamation cases against the media and 85 cases against her political opponents.
