Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Thursday expressed his disappointment over the lack of proper seating arrangement in the state assembly for an “ailing” person like him despite chief minister O. Panneerselvam’s open invitation to attend the session.

After signing the Assembly attendance register, the wheel-chair bound former chief minister held a consultation with his party legislators including M. K. Stalin and Duraimurugan on attending the ongoing session. However, DMK MLAs told their party chief that no seating arrangement has been made for him. Mr Karunanidhi, who was elected from Tiruvarur seat, was allotted a seat in the second row of the house.

Oppn walks out  from Assembly

 

The first day of the brief winter session of the Assembly commenced on a stormy note with  Opposition party members creating ruckus over the duration of the session and staging a noisy walkout. Immediately after the Question Hour, the Opposition party members,  DMDK, DMK, CPI, CPI (M) and Congress, stood up and demanded the House discuss the duration of the session.
