Reacting on the verdict, Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy who had filed complaint against Jayalalithaa 18 years back said, “Its not unusual thing. When you are in a democratic system then such twists & turns are expected.” Jayalalithaa was disqualified from contesting election after the special court had found her guilty.
