While O. Panneerselvam, Chief Minister and J Jayalalithaa's close aide VK Sasikala battle it out in Tamil Nadu, it looks like social media users are definitely having a blast with some memes on the two leaders. Right from the point when Panneerselvam openly rebelled against AIADMK chief Sasikala, drama is unfolding in the state by the day. Game Of Thrones? More like Game of 'thorns'.
Amidst jaw-dropping revelations and statements by AIADMK leaders, people have now started pitying journalists from Tamil Nadu, considering the unfolding of events in the recent past like Jallikatu and Jayalalitha's demise among others.
With hilarious references to Tamil cinema and other memes that with global reference, #OPS (O. Panneerselvam) and #Sasikala are now the internet's new favorite hashtags.
Now that Sasikala has been convicted in the disproportionate assets case on Valentine's Day, looks like the memes just won't stop.
Happy valentine's day, Tamil Nadu!

Soon after Panneerselvam said, "A Supreme Court judge will head the probe into the death of Jayalalithaa", there were a lot of questions about the death of the leader who passed away on 5 December, 2016 after being admitted at the Apollo Hospital for 75 days, this popular reference to Sasikala has been all over our news feeds.
Here is another trending meme related to the race to the Chief Minister's throne in Tamil Nadu.
Now, of course, how can a south political drama not be associated to the superstar himself! The night the AIADMK crisis begun, Facebook was soon juxtaposing the man against Rajinikanth and all sorts of thug life references.
And then there was this. With widespread anger about Sasikala taking over as the Chief Minister, social media made their choice clear.
Many comparisons were made to the Dhanush and Trisha political drama film Kodi
Theory of the people of TN right now
That moment when Panneerselvam took everyone by surprise was when he sat alone in meditation at the burial site of Jayalalithaa, two days after he tendered his resignation. Tamil cinema lovers couldn't stop remembering flashes of Dhanush's film Velaiilla Pattadhari.
