Assembly violence: Governor seeks ‘factual report’

Tamil Nadu Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao has sought a report from the Assembly Secretary on the unsavoury incidents witnessed in the House when Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy won a trust vote.

Rao has sought “a factual report,” on the entire proceedings from the time the House assembled at 11 am on February 18 and till it was adjourned sine die at 3.27 pm, sources said.

The report shall be complete with all documentary and videographic evidence, it has been indicated by the Governor, they said.

Attaching representations from DMK and other parties which alleged violence inside the House and irregularities in the way the voting took place, Rao sent a letter to Jamaludeen asking him to furnish a detailed report. Jamaludeen is expected to send the report to the Governor on Monday.

The DMK, led by its working president and leader of opposition MK Stalin, submitted two petitions to the Governor seeking nullification of the proceedings of the Assembly and sought a fesh trust vote.

Former chief minister O Panneerselvam also met the governor and presented a memorandum.
