Google trends also show that Tamil Nadu people have been searching about the lady on Google the most. India is one such nation that apparently has always been much obsessed with caste and creed, and Sasikala's caste instead of her qualification being so much of importance validates the same again.

Sasikala, came into limelight after the demise of former Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa. She was a close aide of Amma and thus, most members of AIADMK wanted Sasikala to take over the post of CM after the former's demise. She will replace current Tamil Nadu CM O Panneerselvam.
