Cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin, commenting on the political developments in Tamil Nadu said on Monday "234 job opportunities" will shortly open up for the youth in the state.

Ashwin's tweet came a day after AIADMK legislators elected General Secretary V.K. Sasikala as their leader, paving the way for her to become the next Chief Minister, two months after her, mentor J. Jayalalithaa, died.
The 59-year-old Sasikala, a long-time Jayalalithaa confidante, later said that outgoing Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam himself wanted her to head the government.
In a lighter vein, Ashwin later tweeted, Guys please cool it down, it is a job creation drive.Nothing to do with Politics. #howmuchtwisting.
