Looks like the ongoing battle between V.K. Sasikala and O. Panneerselvam has finally come to and end. It was being alleged that Sasikala had keft around 100 MLAs captive in a resort to coerce them into supporting her. However, a 1996 disproportionate assets case has now come back to haunt Sasikala.
She was found guilty in 2014 and acquitted by the High Court in 2015. SC has now upheld it’s verdict, thereby shattering Sasikala aspirations of becoming the CM. She will now spend 4 years in jail, pay rupees 10 crores as fine and is barred from contesting elections in the next decade.
Twitter exploded with jokes and memes as the entire nation was left in shock given the recent turn of events. Here are some of the funniest tweets:
