AIADMK's Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa today wept in the Parliament pleading for protection in the the slap gate row which allegedly took place at Delhi airport on Saturday. "Will the government save me? I need protection. If a leader can slap an MP... Where is human dignity? In Tamil Nadu I have no safety. I am being compelled to resign from a parliamentary post by my leader", Sasikala Pushpa cried in Parliament just a while before being sacked by AIADMK for embarrassing the party.
It is already reported that Sasikala Pushpa made headlines when she allegedly slapped the DMK MP, Trichy Siva, at the security checkpoint at Delhi airport. Both the MPs rained blows at each other for reasons better known to them. The incident later led to the airline company to ban them from their flight. Later, Sasikala said that she slapped Trichy Siva for abusing Jayalalithaa and that she had also apologized to him later.
"Why am I being forced to resign? I will not quit. They forced me to write a resignation letter and sign it. They harassed me and did not even let me go to my Chennai house to refresh myself. They are not allowing my family to speak to me. They have snatched my phone. I have much gratitude for them but the way they have treated me," said Pushpa as she broke into tears.
