Two days after slapping DMK RS MP Trichy Siva at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, allegedly over Siva talking ill about her party, AIADMK Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa on Monday broke down in Rajya Sabha and demanded government protection.
Sasikala Pushpa said “I have life threat.I’m being compelled to resign from my constitutional post.I will not do it.”
“I need protection. I don’t have safety in Tamil Nadu,” she added.
Reacting to the slapping controversy of Sasikala, AIADMK General Secretary Jayalalithaa said “Sasikala Pushpa sacked from the party for bringing ill fame to the party.”
The slap incident between DMK RS MP Trichy Siva and Sasikala Pushpa occurred on Saturday.
According to reports, both leaders had landed separately at the airport departure terminal after the Parliament session to return to Chennai by Jet Airways flight 9W-854.
At the airport, to the surprise of other passengers, Pushpa walked up to Siva and slapped him.
CISF personnel intervened and separated them. Siva left the airport without preferring any complaint with police.
