Ruckus in TN assembly; AIADMK members suspended till April 9
Chennai: AIADMK MLAs were Wednesday suspended till Friday by Tamil Nadu Assembly Speaker R Avudaiyappan after they were evicted from the House en masse for creating rumpus over remarks made by a ruling DMK member.
The problem started when DMK member Anita Radhakrishnan made certain remarks against the AIADMK during a debate on the budget, infuriating the opposition.
KA Se ngottaiyan (AIADMK) told Radhakrishnan that it was their party which had made him a Minister when he was in AIADMK.
Radhakrishnan had quit the AIADMK and joined DMK last year and won the Tiruchendur assembly bye-election.
As AIADMK members continued shouting, the Speaker asked them to maintain decorum but they did not relent. Avudaiyappan then ordered eviction of two AIADMK members G Hari and Arulmozhithevan.
The two members along with their colleagues rushed to the Speaker`s Chair and squatted on the floor raising slogans against him.
The Speaker ordered the Marshals to evict all the AIADMK members who tried to resist it.
Later, Finance Minister and Leader of the House K Anbazhagan requested the Speaker to suspend them for the rest of the debate on budget till Friday to which he agreed.
Avudaiyappan said the AIADMK members` conduct was not in keeping with the ethos and traditions of the House and suspended them till April 9.
