The Supreme Court on Tuesday convicted AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala in the 19-year-old disproportionate assets case that also involved late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. The apex court set aside the Karnataka High Court verdict acquitting her in the case.
Here is who said what after the Supreme Court convicted Sasikala in DA case:
MK Stalin, DMK: After 21 years justice has been done. This would be example to politicians to live corruption-free. Request Governor to take steps to establish stable management in the state.
Soli Sorabjee, former Attorney General: She (Sasikala) can file a review petition but chances of that review petition succeeding are slim
O Panneerselvam: Unfinished task left over by Hon. Amma must be fulfilled, therefore I urge AIADMK MLAs and ministers to resume their work. I thank lakhs and lakhs of people for continuing to support us. Good governance of Amma will continue. Without any other party's support our own govt will continue.
Tamilan Prasanna, DMK: This is a great success for Tamil Nadu people. It is a victory of truth and judicial system
AIADMK quotes VK Sasikala: In the past whenever Amma was in crisis, I also suffered this time also I will take it upon me. 'Dharma' will win:Â
Subramanian Swamy: I was expecting the conviction. I don't think she can escape the 4 years sentence
BV Acharya, Former Advocate General: Justice has been done.Judgement shows how strong & independent is our judiciary
