Former Supreme Court Justice Markandey Katju has professed his love for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in a Facebook post. In the post, Katju calls Jayalalithaa a 'lioness' and calls her opponents 'langurs'.
The post has now been taken off his page, but here is the full text of the post:
"All these Cassandras of doom will be disillusioned. Jayalalitha is a sherni, and her opponents are langoors.
She will recover and be back to work.
When I was a young man, and she too was young I thought her extrememly attractive and had fallen in love with her, though of course she did not know about it, and it was unrequited love.
I still find her attractive (which unfortunately I am not now), and am still in love with her, and wish her speedy recovery. Hari Om"
He wrote another post titled 'My meetings with Jayalalithaa', where he described the two instances when he met the Tamil Nadu CM.
The first time Katju met Jayalalithaa was when he was the acting Chief Justice of Allahabad High Court and the notification to be the Chief Justice of Madras High Court came. The second time he met her was when he was the Chairman of the Press Council of India.
Katju is popular for voicing his opinions publicly and has a reputation of being controversy's favourite child. In the past, he has offended various communities with his jibes on social media platforms.
