Post the disqulification of 18

AIADMK legislators, their rooms at the MLAs' Hostel here

have been sealed and the individuals asked to settle pending


A notice from Assembly Secretary K Srinivasan put up on

their rooms has also asked them to take their belongings in

the presence of an Under Secretary (Hostel Administration)

after intimating the official.

The action comes in the wake of the October 25 Madras

High Court order upholding the disqualification of the 18 MLAs

by Speaker P Dhanapal last year for 'defection.'

The High Court had upheld the June 14 order of the then

Chief Justice disqualifying the 18 rebel AIADMK MLAs, in a

huge relief to the K Palaniswami government.

Earlier on June 14, a bench of then Chief Justice Indira

Banerjee and Justice M Sundar had given a split verdict on the

case on.

According to the notice, they were "not entitled to any

facilities provided to the Members of Legislative Assembly

including the MLAs' residential quarters", pursuant to their

disqualification by the Speaker last year "on grounds of


"Despite the orders of disqualification, you had not

vacated the MLAs' residential quarters. Therefore, under the

direction of the Hon'ble Speaker, the quarters allotted to you

is locked and sealed by this Secretariat," it said.

It asked them to take their belongings and vacate the


"You are also called upon to settle the pending rental

dues immediately," the notice said.

All the 18 were disqualified as MLAs in September 2017,

days after they met then Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao and

expressed no confidence in Palaniswami.

The move of the 18 MLAs, loyal to sidelined AIADMK leader

TTV Dhinakaran and the party's deposed leader VK Sasikala, had

come after Palaniswami merged his faction with that of then

rebel leader O Panneerselvam, now state Deputy Chief Minister.
