Thiruvanathapuram: CPI(M) Deputy Leader in Kerala Assembly, Kodiyeri Balakrishnan on Saturday sought privilege proceedings against Chief Minister Oommen Chandy for announcing the government's 100-day programme outside the assembly while the House was in session.

In his notice to Speaker G Karthikeyan seeking proceedings against Chandy, Balakrishnan held that the Chief Minister's action amounted to breach of privilege under Rule 154 of the House.

He said when the House adjourned after election of Speaker on Thursday, Karthikeyan did not say that the assembly was adjourning 'sine die.' This would mean, the House was still in session. The Speaker had also said that the House would meet again later this month, Balakrishnan said.

Chandy announced the 100-day action plan as the newly installed Government's pilot programme on June 2 at a function here.
