The News Minute | March 30, 2015 | 09.20 am IST As the jail period for 50 AAP cadres in Chennai’s Puzhal jail entered its second week, the party has begun an indefinite fast until the party members are released. According to a press release by AAP’s TN wing, the volunteers have no prior criminal background and many known to be social activists. On Sunday, AAP Tamil Nadu leader Mr. Vasigaran began a fast which is to be continued until the protestors are released. Fifty cadres were arrested after entering and protesting inside Chief Minister O Panneerselvam’s residence in Chennai. Lodged in the Puzhal jail, their bail petitions will come up before the court magistrate on Monday. Noted activist, Traffic Ramaswamy, who was part of the protest when it was flagged off on Sunday told The News Minute that he would voice his support against the arrests again. Blaming the police for their inadequacy in preventing the protestors from entering the residence, he said “They have no police protection” "I intend to go meet them once they are released," he said on Monday.  Read Amidst AAP mudslinging in Delhi, Chennai cadre in jail for a week
