Tamil Nadu crisis: More trouble has come AIADMK chief VK Sasikala ways after the Supreme Court setback on Tuesday. Today a kidnapping case was filed against Jayalalithaa’s aide and K Palanisamy in Kuvathur Police Station in Tamil Nadu on the complaint of Madurai MLA S Saravanan. Saravanan said he was kidnapped by the duo and kept at Golden Bay Resort against his will. More than 130 MLAs were taken to Golden Bay resort previous week where they were ‘confined’ till yesterday. According to reports by NDTV, all the communication signals were jammed and movement was restricted inward or outward of the resort. It was only by last night that all MLAs were set free after the judgement by the Supreme Court was announced.

Yesterday, Sasikala was convicted by the 2-judge Supreme Court bench in Rs 66 crore Disproportionate Assets case and was sentenced to 4 years in jail, besides imposition of a fine of Rs 10 crore each on Sasikala and two others. So now she has to lay off her claim to the post of the CM of Tamil Nadu. The court verdict shattered 61-year-old Sasikala’s dream of becoming Chief Minister just days after launching herself into active politics. Meanwhile, Thiru. Edappadi K. Palanisami loyalist of Sasikala was elected as Legislature Party Leader following the conviction of the AIADMK general secretary.

Earlier in the day, Sasikala reinducted her close relatives TTV Dinkaran and S Venkatesh into the party, five years after their expulsion by J Jayalalithaa. Dinakaran’s brother Sudhakaran was convicted along with Sasikala yesterday. So was their aunt J Ilavarasi, Sasikala’s sister-in-law. The Supreme Court today refused to entertain AIADMK chief VK Sasikala’s plea seeking more time to surrender for undergoing jail term in the disproportionate assets case.
