Chennai, Feb 11: There has been hectic activity at the Golden Bay resort near Chennai where AIADMK MLAs loyal to Sasikala Natarajan have been kept. The police has reached the resort to find out if the MLAs are staying there on their own will or being held captive. Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu O Panneerselvam had alleged before the governor that the MLAs are being kept at the resort forcibly.
The governor had assured that he would look into these allegations. The police is currently at the resort to verify the allegations. Police officials would speak with the MLAs individually to get a correct picture.
Earlier there were incidents of stone pelting reported at the
resort. Some persons were angry with the prying media which has
been stationed at the resort since the past three days to track the
MLAs who are alleged to be held captive by Sasikala who is trying
to become the next chief minister of Tamil Nadu.
A petition too had been filed in the Madras high court seeking to know where the MLAs were. On Thursday the high court was told by the government that the MLAs were in the MLA hostel and not at any resort. However investigations done by journalists tracked the MLAs to the resort.
The petition was taken up on Friday and the court sought an affidavit from the government on the status of the MLAs.
