DMK treasurer and Leader of Opposition M K Stalin has said if needed, his party would approach Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah over the issue of suspension of 79 of his party MLAs from the Assembly.
“If needed, we will meet him,” Stalin told reporters when asked if his party was planning to approach Rosaiah over the issue of suspension of DMK MLAs.
Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Monday said DMK president M Karunanidhi and Stalin do not have guts to take part in debates in the Assembly.
Replying to the debate on demands for grants for Police and Fire and Rescue Services departments, she said, “People are coming to know about the behaviour of DMK members in the Assembly through newspapers and television channels. On 16 August, Stalin himself has said that he was ashamed and hurt due to the acts of his party MLAs and was even ready to tender apology to the Speaker.”
Reacting to Jayalalithaa’s comment in the state assembly, targeting his father M Karunanidhi for not participating in the proceedings on Monday, Stalin recalled that when the DMK patriarch was CM, Jayalalithaa was the opposition leader.
An FIR was filed on Sunday against Stalin and other DMK MLAs who had protested inside the Tamil Nadu Secretariat and outside the Assembly premise.
