Sasikala Pushpa expelled by AIADMK for slapping DMK MP

Mon, Aug 01, 2016, 12:33 PM
AIADMK's Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa was on Monday expelled from the party for bringing disrepute to the party and for anti-party activities.

AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa slapped a DMK MP Tiruchi Siva at Delhi's IGI airport. Both the Rajya Sabha MPs were checking in for a Jet airways flight to Chennai, when they realised that the other was also traveling in the same flight.

In Parliament Monday, Sasikala Pushpa broke down, saying she needed protection. "I don't have safety in Tamil Nadu. There is a threat to my life. We should have human dignity. I'm being compelled to resign from my constitutional post. I will not do it." she said.

The order to expel her from the party comes from AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa.

Tiruchi Siva, the Rajya Sabha MP from DMK, said that as he was returning from the Delhi airport canceling his tickets, he was shocked by Sasikala Pushpa's attack on him. He said that Sasikala slapped him once.

However, Sasikala Pushpa said that she became emotional as Siva criticized the Tamil Nadu government and Jayalalithaa and that's why she slapped him four times.
