AIADMK legislator suspended for ‘bringing disrepute’ to Tamil Nadu Assembly

Leader of the House K Anbazhagan moved the resolution to suspend A K Bose who represents the Thiruparakundram Constituency for the Thursday’s incident in the house.

A resolution to this effect was unanimously passed by the House in which members of all parties, except AIADMK, MDMK and DMDK, were present.

During the suspension period, Bose will not get any privileges, including the salary, accorded to an MLA.

Anbazhagan said the AIADMK MLA snatched a cap from a watch and ward staff and hurled it at the Speaker R Avudaiappan, lowering the dignity of the chair and the house.

He said the punishment was being meted out to “establish sovereignty of the assembly”.

Though all members wanted maximum punishment of disqualifying the MLA, the minimum punishment was awarded following Chief Minister M Karunanidhi’s request, he said.

Uproarious scenes were witnessed in the house on Thursday when AIADMK members made a vociferous protest against the privilege issue raised against the party supremo Jayalalithaa by Local Administration Minister M K Stalin.

The house had also passed a resolution suspending all AIADMK MLAs for the rest of the current session. (ANI)
