Expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa: won’t resign from Rajya Sabha


The domestic servants, who reportedly worked at Pushpa’s house in Tamil Nadu, had filed a police complaint alleging that they were tortured and sexually harassed.Expelled AIADMK Rajya Sabha MP M Sasikala Pushpa, who is facing sexual harassment case filed by her two domestic aides, said on Monday that she would not resign from the Upper House. “There is no question my resignation from the Rajya Sabha,” Sasikala, told reporters here on her arrival from Singapore.
Sasikala, who was expelled from AIADMK earlier on August, said she will be appearing before the Madras High Court’s Madurai bench to respond to an allegation of having played fraud on the court while filing an anticipatory bail application registered by Thoothukudi police against her and her family members for allegedly ill-treating and sexually abusing two domestic aides.
The court had directed the MP to appear before it on Monday and explain how she could have signed a petition in Madurai on August 17 authorising her lawyer to argue the advance bail plea on behalf of her when the police claimed that she did not enter Tamil Nadu ever since the case was registered early this month. Sasikala proceeded to Madurai in a domestic flight from the Chennai airport.
