New Delhi: 45 AIADMK MPs on Thursday observed a fast in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue in Parliament complex, demanding justice for party supremo and former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

Jayalalithaa was sentenced to four years in jail in an 18-year-old corruption case and fined a staggering Rs 100 crore by a special court in Bangalore on September 27.

The MPs began their fast at 10.00 AM and would continue till 5 pm, AIADMK Parliamentary Party leader P Venugopal said.

Wondering why there was ‘delay' in hearing her bail plea, he demanded that Jayalalithaa be granted ‘immediate relief as per law'.

"The aim of the fast is to draw the nation's attention to the delay in granting bail to our leader. The judgement was given on Saturday, which was followed by Dussehra holidays," he added.
