Ever since the demise of J Jayalalithaa, there has been a huge void in the Tamil Nadu political arena, especially within her party AIADMK. Amid a lot of speculation on who would be a perfect candidate to fill her shoes, O Panneerselvam was appointed as the chief minister of the state. But things did not rest there, as today Jaya’s closest aide V K Sasikala was elected as the leader of AIADMK legislature party and soon will take charge as the CM.

As soon as the news of her taking over the post was announced, political and media cirxlea have been buzzzing, and that has generously spilled over to the social media space as well. It seems the general sentiment ia that of shock and amusement than a positive or encouraging one. O Panneerselvam cited personal reasons and tendered his resignation from the post of the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, and announced that he has passed on the baton to Chinamma.

The news was unsurprisingly not well received.

Strangely, many users could not decide which was worse, the US being governed by Donald Trump or Tamil Nadu under Sasikala.
