Chennai: DMK treasurer and Leader of Opposition M K Stalin on Tuesday said 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.
He said as of now his party did not have any idea of calling on the Governor over the issue.
To another question, he said that 79 members, including himself, have been suspended for only a week and that they would participate in House proceedings after the end of the suspension period.
He reiterated that public meetings will be held across Tamil Nadu, including Madurai and Tiruchirappalli, on the suspension issue.
Stalin and 78 other DMK MLAs were suspended on August 17 for allegedly stalling the proceedings of the House. On August 18, they held a mock Assembly in the precincts of Fort St George and a case was registered against DMK members.
DMK has also approached the Madras High Court over the issue....
