Today, the Supreme Court confirms the Conviction of the AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala, Illavarasi and Sudhakaran as sentenced by Karnataka Special Court Judge Michael D Kunha in 2014 and ordered all of them to surrender immediately before the trial court in Bangalore. He sentenced a imprisonment of four years and a fine of Rs 10 Crore. With this confirmation of conviction, Sasikala will not be able to contest in elections for 10 years.
This is a major setback to VK Sasikala and her camp to become the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu. Earlier, she claimed to form the new Government in Tamilnadu following the resignation of O.Paneerselvam as the Chief Minister of Tamilnadu.
At present, VK Sasikala is staying with the MLAs at Golden Bay Resorts in Koovathur in Kancheepuram District.
It is not clear whether as of now whether many more MLAs would switch over to O.Paneerselvam's camp or the MLAs would select a new Legislative Leader and would meet the Government with a fresh claim to form the Government.
Mr. Edappadi Palanisamy, the Minister of Highways has been selected as the new leader of legistative Party in the post Supreme Court Verdict at the Golden Bay Resort in Koovathur in Kancheepuram District, outskirts of the capital City of Tamilnadu, Chennai.
