The day after it became clear that VK Sasikala will be Tamil Nadu's next Chief Minister, the Supreme Court said that it is ready to decide - most likely by next week - on whether the 61-year-old is guilty of conspiring with J Jayalalithaa to accumulate vast amounts of wealth far exceeding their known sources of income in the early 90s.

Jayalalithaa, popularly referred to as "Amma", died while she was head of the Tamil Nadu government in December.

Yesterday, her party, the AIADMK, decided that her closest aide, Sasikala, will take over as Chief Minister. In doing so, she will replace O Panneerselvam, who has recurringly filled in for Chief Minister while the party made long-term arrangements for its political leadership.
