Chennai: Three AIADMK MLAs were evicted from the Tamil Nadu Assembly on Tuesday for creating ruckus.

Speaker R Avudaiyappan ordered eviction of SS Krishmurthy, C Ve Shanmugam and L Ravichandran after his pleas requesting them to maintain decorum failed with Ravichandran shouting slogans against the Speaker.

It all began when DMK member and Deputy Speaker VP Duraisamy, while participating in the debate on budget, made some remarks against the AIADMK high command which triggered an angry response from the Opposition benches.

They flayed the Speaker's earlier decision to expunge AIADMK member Sentamizhan's remarks against a DMK leader, and demanded that Avudaiyappan expunge the remarks made by Duraisamy also.

However, the Speaker did not budge and his repeated pleas to maintain calm fell on deaf ears. At this point, Avudaiyappan ordered the marshals to evict the three AIADMK MLAs, one of them (Shanmugam) a former Education Minister, following which AIADMK members staged a walk out.

Earlier, the Speaker and AIADMK members were involved in an argument after he took exception to one of the members, R Chinnasamy, standing with his back exposed to the Speaker while conversing with another member, a few feet away from the Speaker's Chair.

He directed the MLA to sit in his place, saying certain protocol of the House regarding sanctity of the Chair had to be strictly complied with. AIADMK members reacted sharply to the Speaker's remarks.
