The management of Golden Bay Resort where over hundred AIADMK MLAs have been staying since February 8 has announced that it will close for two days for "maintenance". 

Speaking to The News Minute, a reliable source said, "There is damage to property. The lawn is a mess. Plates have been broken. The resort needs to be cleaned. The staff has been working continuously and they need some rest."

The source clarified that the resort had not been shut down permanently as some media channels were reporting.

Previously, the management was forced to take down the website of the resort because many people were calling and asking for bookings as a joke. 

"People were calling the resort and asking if any rooms were available as a joke. It was a very stressful time as already, the management was trying to cope with the situation of managing so many people," the source said. 

TNM had earlier reported that so far, only an amount of Rs 2 lakhs had been paid to the resort for groceries. With Sasikala going to jail, the management is uncertain about when their bills will be settled, if at all.

"The cost per day would work out to about 4-5 lakhs," the source had told TNM previously. 

The AIADMK MLAs left the Koovathur resort for the Secretariat in Chennai on Saturday. 

"They've not taken their bags and are likely to come back," the source revealed. "The resort has been booked till Tuesday. Don't know what will happen after that."

The DIG has reportedly assured the resort of security in case things go out of hand.
