4-year jail time for Sasikala in DA case: After SC verdict, AIADMK tweets, says she'll carry Jayalalithaa's burden

Minutes after the supreme court convicted VK Sasikala, the AIADMK on Tuesday threw its weight behind the party General Secretary, saying she has always carried the "burden" of Jayalalithaa.

"Whenever there had been burden for Amma (Jayalalithaa) she (Sasikala) had taken it on her. She is doing the same now also," the party's official Twitter handle,
@AIADMKOfficial said.

here is the original tweet in Tamil.

Sasikala was earlier today convicted by the apex court which set aside the Karnataka High Court verdict acquitting her in the 19-year-old disproportionate assets case that also involved the late Jayalalithaa.

The apex court restored in toto the judgement and the findings of the trial court in Bengaluru which had held guilty all the accused including Sasikala's two relatives, V N Sudhakaran and Elavarasi.

The verdict disqualifies Sasikala from becoming a legislator, and consequentially she can't be chief minister either.
