SC restores Sasikala's conviction in disproportionate assets case
In a major setback for AIADMK General Secretary Sasikala Natarajan, who was aspiring to be the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, the Supreme Court on Tuesday restored her conviction in a disproportionate assets case.
 
A division bench of of Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and Justice Amitava Roy set aside a Karnataka High Court order staying the conviction of Sasikala and three by a trial court. 
 
The court directed Sasikala and the others to "immediately" surrender before the trial court and ordered them to serve the remaining portion of their jail term.
 
Justice Roy, in a concurring judgment, expressed deep concern over the "escalating menace of corruption in society".

Its a good bold decision. It is hightime corruption is substantially reduced in our country and the ill gotten wealth of the culprits is confiscated.

At last, justice, though delayed, was not denied. The delay, however, cost the state and the exchequer very much in terms of misrule by a corrupt cabal. The delay also helped the main culprit escape the punishment by way of death. A 100-crore penalty is nothing but peanuts when the loot and plunder by the culprits runs in to thousands of crores of rupees. Unless all the ill-gotten wealth and property is confiscated and the pecuniary loss caused to the state is made good by realizing the same from out of the assets of the guilty, the ends of justice do not mean to have met. Where are the lessons learnt? And, who learnt any? No, not at all. Business as usual.

These political developments in Tamil Nadu politics on 7 February 2017 and after are in line with this Vedic astrology writer’s predictions in article “ 2017 – an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. The latest political scenario has now developed after conviction of Sasikala for four years by SC in her asset disproportionate case. It was predicted that while January to March could be a testing time for Chennai in Tamil Nadu , February-March may have major worrisome concerns involving health hazards or epidemics on account of energy resources like oil. Similarly , major worrisome concerns in political scenario during the said first three months , particularly February-March in Tamil Nadu also were described like this : “ Some political leaders may likely be unwell or break away or probably face some consequence of wrong-doing allegedly done in past”. It seems the oil spill as well as political developments during the period in Chennai seem to be precisely matching this writer’s predictions
