Police book Sasikala, Palaniswamy for alleged detention of AIADMK MLAs

Kancheepuram, Feb 15 (PTI): Police today booked AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala and its Legislature Party Leader Edappadi K Palaniswamy in connection with the alleged detention of party MLAs at a resort in this district.

The two were booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to abduction and wrongful confinement.

The case was filed at Koovathur police station on a complaint from Madurai (South) MLA S S Saravanan, who has since joined the rebel O Panneerselvam camp.

Last week, while extending his support to Chief Minister Panneerselvam, Saravanan claimed that he had managed to flee from the resort by changing into a t-shirt and bermuda shorts.
On February 5, Sasikala was elected as the Legislature Party Leader.

However, two days later, Panneerselvam had raised a banner of revolt against her, alleging he was forced to step down for her.

The AIADMK MLAs have been put up at the luxury resort for the past one week, and many of those who swear allegiance to Sasikala have been insisting they were staying on their own volition. Sasikala herself had visited the resort thrice to hold discussions with her party legislators.

    The biggest loser in this drama is O (Zero) Panneerselvam. If he had not revolted against Sasikala, she would have appointed Panneerselvam for the CM post when she is going to jail. Zero Panneerselvam and his follower MLA, MPs has lost the ground now. They may have to join DMK. BJP played dirty politics via proxy governor, going to get Tmilnadu.

    Governor has decided to play all dirty tricks to ensure Sasikala and any of her associates dont become the CM ...Game plan is to make OPS -CM and get AIADMK support . Its crucial in rajya sabha as well as the next presidential election . BJP is trying everything it can do but all their plans will fail if they lose the elections in UP and other states ...
