Sasikala Pushpa’s lawyer thrashed by the AIADMK party cadre :- On Wednesday, clashes erupted at the AIADMK headquarters in Chennai with the lawyer of expelled leader Sasikala Pushpa and  got injuries at the hands of party cadre.

As per the report that the incident occurred when Pushpa arrived at the party office to file nomination papers for the post of party general secretary, but was prevented from doing so.

The incident comes a day before the general council meeting of party to elect the AIADMK general secretary, for which the late Jayalalithaa’s close aide Sasikala Natarajan is believed to be the top contender.

Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament – Sasikala Pushpa had approached the Madras High Court to restrain the AIADMK from unlawfully and arbitrarily appointing Sasikala Natarajan as the general secretary.

Pushpa also called for a probe into the death of Jayalalithaa and met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on the issue.

She also alleged that Natarajan had tried to kill Jayalalithaa. It would be wrong to nominate Sasikala Natarajan as the general secretary of the party. She was expelled by Amma for conspiring against her and trying to kill her.

Earlier on Sunday, Pushpa filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court urging it to order for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the death of Jayalalithaa.

Pushpa was expelled from the party on 1st August 2016 after she informed Parliament that she had been slapped by an AIADMK leader in Chennai and was facing death threats.
