While Vishvas News recently debunked a viral post of a tweet from VK Sasikala’s fake Twitter account, we searched for more information on the internet.
With the countdown having begun for the Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu, both the ruling AIADMK and the opposition DMK alliances have hit roadblocks. The AIADMK is in a fix as allies BJP and RSS want to facilitate re-entry into the party of ousted general secretary V K Sasikala, the closest aide of the late J Jalayalithaa, states an article in the Indian Express.
While we found news articles about VK Sasikala’s interest to have alliance with the AIADMK, we didn’t find any authentic news reports of any such deragatory statements from her about the ruling party on the Internet.
We also observed the unusual bio description on the Twitter profile Sasikala Natarajan (@SasikalaOffl).
Vishvas News contacted Amma Makkal Munnettra Kazagam (AMMK) Spokesperson Arun Kumar for clarification. “She (VK Sasikala) does not have a twitter account. The is not the first time tweet has gone viral in her name,” he said.
Social scanning of the Facebook user who shared the viral post revealed that he has 5000 friends on Facebook and is from Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
Conclusion: The viral post is fake. VK Sasikala does not have a twitter account.
