It was high tension and drama outside the Tamil Nadu Assembly today, as the DMK MLAs, who were suspended on Wednesday, staged a dharna. They were led by opposition leader and DMK treasurer M K Stalin.
As they were denied entry, they sat outside and staged dharna, raising slogans. Talking to media persons, Stalin came down heavily on the AIADMK government and said Assembly proceedings should be aired live on television channels so that people could understand what was happening inside.
Today’s events come a day after Assembly speaker P Dhanapal ordered en masse suspension of DMK MLAs. The decision led to protests, with DMK cadre burning the Speaker
