Heamalatha,one of the Ashram sisters who were evicted from the Sri Aurobindo Ashram here on Supreme Court direction some time back, today caused a flutter by observing a fast in front of the legislative assembly today.

Hemalatha told newspersons when the sisters observed a fast i nfront of the head post office here some time back to press their demands including their reinstatement in the Ashram,Puducherry Speaker V Sabapathy and Legislator K Lakshminarayanan held talks with them and assured they would get in touch with the Ashram authorities and ensure their readmission to the ashram. However,nothing materialized so far and when approached, the Chief Secretary and District Collector,both said they could do nothing in this regard and hence, she decided to observe fast in front of the legislative assembly.

Hearing the news police rushed to the spot and forced her to shift to the Bharathi Park infront of the legislative assembly but not before an altercation between the police and her.

Hemalathas elder sister Nivethitha yesterday had field a complaint with the police stating Hemalatha is missing. Poice later traced her near Tindivanam and brought her back to Puducherry to join with Niveditha.UNI PAB GM 1507
