Tamil Nadu politics trends on social media with #Sasikala generating 27.31k mentions in few hours

Tamil Nadu politics has been always been akin to high voltage drama. This time, mercury has been rising ever since then late chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s close aide O Panneerselvam spoke against All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) general secretary VK Sasikala last week. He had declared at late chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s memorial that he was forced to resign from the chief minister’s post. This led Sasikala to remove him from the post of AIADMK treasurer. Before that, Sasikala was elected as the AIADMK’s Legislature Party leader on Sunday, which was paving way for her elevation as Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, replacing O Panneerselvam. But after Supreme Court convicted her in a 21-year-old disproportionate assets case, sealing the lid on her hopes of becoming the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, the drama went to another level. She will have to surrender to the Chennai police to serve her four year jail sentence.

The entire scenario has been trending under the #Sasikala which generated 27.31K mentions on social media and 1.25K mentions on online news agencies (till the time we filed the story) as mapped by research firm, Meltwater. Even the #SasikalaConvicted was gaining momentum on Twitter with several journalists and even Narendra Modi tweeting about it. 

So far it induced more negative sentiments (65.87 per cent) than neutral sentiments (33.55 per cent) both on online news agencies and social media according to Meltwater. In fact across social media negative sentiments stood at 54.57 per cent while positive sentiments surprisingly stood at 9.60 per cent.
