India and Tamil Nadu cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin yesterday created a flutter with his tweet that has a distinct political connotation.

"To all the youngsters in TN, 234 job opportunities to open up shortly," Ravichandran tweeted.

It should be noted the total strength of Tamil Nadu assembly is 235 (234 elected and one nominated) and AIADMK General Secretary V.K. Sasikala is set to be sworn-in as the state Chief Minister soon despite opposition from some party members and grassroot workers.

Ashwin's tweet alludes to polls for the state assembly soon, given the total number of assembly seats in Tamil Nadu.

Some hours later he again tweeted: "Guys please cool it down, it is a job creation drive. Nothing to do with Politics."
