The News Minute | September 27, 2014 | 2.59 pm IST pm  Reactions to Tamil Nadu chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's conviction in the disproportionate assets case began coming in as soon as the verdict was confirmed. Although Kannada news channels covering the event began to report that she had been convicted, a good hour before confirmation was received.  Television news channels showed women supporters of Jayalalithaa in Chennai weeping almost unconsolably upon hearing news of her conviction. Miscreants pelted stones at Subramanian Swamy's house in Chennai. A bus was burnt in Ambattur. Communist Party of India Rajya Sabha member from Tamil Nadu D Raja said "People should take a lesson from this. First there was Lalu, then we saw in the Chautala case, now we are seeing this. This is a significant decision and will affect the politics of the state." The DMK meanwhile, has said that its stand has been vindicated.  Several people have been reacting on Twitter as well. As this man's tweet shows, Indian politics can some times be farcical.
