Chennai, Aug 1: Days after she reportedly got into a scuffle with a DMK MP at Delhi airport, Rajya Sabha MP M Sasikala Pushpa was today expelled from the AIADMK by party supremo Jayalalithaa for "bringing disrepute to the party".
In a brief statement, Jayalalithaa said that Pushpa was being expelled from all party posts, including primary membership, as she had acted in violation of the party principles and ethics.
"Her behaviour has brought great disrepute to the party," she said. Jayalalithaa asked party supporters not to have any truck henceforth with the Thoothukudi based Rajya Sabha MP. Last week, Pushpa had reportedly got into a scuffle with her Rajya Sabha colleague from DMK Tiruchi Siva at Delhi airport.
