Chennai, Oct 24 (ANI): The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Friday staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha demanding arrest of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi over his alleged support to the separatist LTTE in Sri Lanka.
As soon the proceedings began, AIADMK members raised slogans demanding dismissal of the Tamil Nadu Government and arrest of Karunanidhi.
Chairman Hamid Ansari, however, disallowed their move and said that the Question Hour should be taken up.
With Ansari disallowing their move, AIADMK members staged a walkout from the House.
Earlier, 13 MPs including six ministers of Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) handed their resignation letters to Karunanidhi on October 17 demanding action from the Central Government.
