Bangalore, Sept 29: The former chief minister of Tamil Nadu and AIADMK Chief J Jayalalithaa has been reportedly assigned a new task of making incense sticks, chopping vegetables or tailoring.

As per a report published in TOI, during her imprisonment in Bangalore's Parappana Agrahara Central Prison, Jayalalithaa will have to perform one of the above tasks, the jail officials said.

However, the jail officials also said that considering the age and health of 66-year-old Jayalalithaa, she may be given an exemption from doing such laborious tasks.

On Sunday, Jayalalithaa reported of blurring eyesight and increased sugar levels, following which she was shifted to Ward number 23, a special ward for women, in case of health complications.

Her close aide Sasikala, who is also lodged in the same jail, on Sunday, complained of tummy upset after she was served jail's curd rice.

Another aide, Ilavarasi, too complained of food poisoning and was given lemon juice.

Sources also revealed that a plastic western commode was installed in Jayalalithaa's cell, as she wanted to live in more 'hygienic surroundings'.

On Monday, lawyer of Jalayalithaa, B Kumar moved the Karnataka High Court for her bail.

O Panneerselvam, a known loyalist of Jayalalithaa, was sworn-in as the new Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on Monday, Sept 29, during which he broke down along with other ministers.

Jayalalithaa, Sasikala, Ilavarasi and Jayalalithaa's disowned son Sudhakaran were convicted in a 18-year-old disproportionate assets case.

Jayalalithaa was imposed with a fine of Rs 100 crore, while others were fined of Rs 10 crore each, along-with the jail term of 4 years.
