Panneerselvam on Sasikala’s resort ‘jail’: 4 'goons' guarding each AIADMK MLA

By Oneindia Staff Writer

Chennai, Feb 13: As Tamil Nadu's political potboiler is refusing to die anytime soon, caretaker Chief Minister O Panneerselvam made some shocking revelations against All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam interim general secretary Sasikala Natarajan on Sunday.

Panneerselvam told reporters that four goondas are guarding each AIADMK MLA in a resort located in the outskirts of Chennai under the instruction of Sasikala. More than 120 AIADMK MLAs, supporting Sasikala to become the next CM of the state, are currently lodged at Golden Bay Resorts near Mahabalipuram.

However, Panneerselvam says that the MLAs are being forcefully kept in the resort.

"Even today, a few of the MLAs contacted me. They told me that there are four goondas guarding each MLA. They are surrounded and tortured. They cannot get out," he said while addressing reporters at his residence.

On Sunday, Sasikala presented the MLAs in a press conference and claimed that they were free. "Instead of shedding crocodile tears and claiming that they are free, she should let them go back to their homes," Panneerselvam accused.

Both Panneerselvam and Sasikala are claiming their stake to the CM's post in TN. However, till now majority of the MLAs of the ruling party are maintaining that they support Sasikala to be the next CM after Panneerselvam resigned recently. According to media reports, currently 129 MLAs are backing Sasikala and six Panneerselvam.

However, 10 Parliamentarians are supporting Panneerselvam camp. The caretaker CM claims that more MLAs will join his camp in the coming days.
