Celebrities React To SC Verdict in Sasikala DA Case

RedditWhatsapp

AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala suffered a major setback in the 21-year-old disproportionate assets case recently. The Supreme Court upheld the trial court’s judgement and sentenced all those accused (VK Sasikala, Ilavarasi and VN Sudhakaran) to four years imprisonment.

Sasikala, whose bid to become TN CM was announced earlier this month, cannot hold public office for ten years. This means her controversial takeover of the ADMK party, and her desire to become CM, are null and void.

A section of the Tamil film industry rejoiced at the news.

Arvind Swamy though was cautious in his reaction to the judgement.

Public sentiment has been conflicted towards Sasikala, a longtime confidant of former TN CM Jayalalithaa, from the beginning. A lot of TN people view her as an usurper, and are keen on establishing caretaker CM O Panneerselvam as the Chief Minister.

Soon after the SC’s decision was announced, reports of people bursting crackers to celebrate began pouring in.
