Uproar in TN Assembly, DMDK MLAs suspended

The Tamil Nadu Assembly on Thursday witnessed tumult after a remark by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition against AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa, with the Speaker’s podium being damaged, marshals attacked in the corridor and DMDK MLAs suspended.

Deputy Leader of the Opposition and DMDK MLA, R Mohanraj without naming AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa made an implied reference to her, which was strongly opposed by the treasury benches. Ruling party members led by Chief Minister O Panneerselvam urged Speaker P Dhanapal to initiate appropriate action against Mohanraj. Mohanraj’s remark came after an AIADMK MLA made an indirect reference to DMDK chief Vijayakanth, which was considered disparaging by his party members. Speaker Dhanapal expunged Moharaj’s remark even as he was arguing noisily and ordered his eviction as he obstructed proceedings.
