On Tuesday, former Supreme Court Justice Markandey Katju declared his love for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha on Facebook. Jayalalitha is presently hospitalized in Chennai.

"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 extremely 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," Katju wrote on Facebook, as quoted by The News Minute.

Navbharat Times carried a screenshot of the post.
