JAYALALITHAA CONVICTED IN DA CASE: AS EXPECTED, TEARS ARE OUTPOURING! (SPILLING OVER)!

The flow becomes copious and tries to stuff in as many points of the loyalty bonus as possible when the camera pans towards them!

Jayalalithaa, the ‘immensely’ popular Tamil Nadu chief minister, who rode back to the corridors of power in 2011, and repeated her electoral success in Lok Sabha elections this year, almost wiping out the main political opposition party in the state, the DMK, has been convicted in a DA case (or the disproportionate assets case –a term brought in vogue by the deeds of the Indian politicians facing corruption charges).

She was convicted today by a judge of a Special Court hearing her case in Bangalore, out of Tamil Nadu, on a plea, after she took over the reins of the state. She was convicted today in yet another corruption case, by a trial court, after 18 long years. Yes, like in the past, she can expect to walk out free from the higher courts, but that comes later.

And unlike in the past, she cannot remain the chief minister now, given a recent landmark Supreme Court order, that imposes the restrictions immediately after the ‘being guilty’ verdict is announced.

So, after 18 years – 18 long years, she is facing the jail term again, and see, who is celebrating in Tamil Nadu, another political family facing charges and allegations of huge corruption and misappropriations – the Karunanidhi family, as the charges and the ongoing probes say – many prominent DMK faces were in jail like Kanimozhi, Karunanidhi’s daughter or A Raja, former Telecom Minister. In fact, most of the central figures and the first political families in majority of the Indian states are facing corruption allegations/charges.

While writing this, the suspense over her sentencing continues. According to the legal experts, the minimum term that she faces in prison is one year, while the gravity of the charges and the subsequent judicial interpretation by the presiding judge can stretch it to the maximum under the terms of her conviction – seven years.

As of now, the unconfirmed reports say of a four year term and that she would go to jail tonight.

And as expected, as has been the trend in the politics of the South Indian states in such circumstances, the painted up faces and the made up emotions have taken up their positions. As expected, tears are outpouring and the administrative machinery is geared up to tackle the incidents of violence against the verdict of a democratic institution.

Amma’s (Jayalalithaa’s) supporters are crying out their hearts and it becomes louder and more vocal when facing cameras – Glycerine tears, like many claimed suicides after the sudden death of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister in a helicopter crash on September 2, 2009?
