Kerala assembly witnesses protests; on these issues

proceedings in the Assembly had to be adjourned early after the Congress boycotted the Question Hour

The Kerala Assembly witnessed protests for a third day today.

The protests were by the Opposition led by the Congress over the murders of Youth Congress worker Shuhaib and MSF worker Safeer.

Another major issue was that of the brutal lynching of tribal man Madhu in Attappady.

The proceedings in the Assembly had to be adjourned early after the Congress boycotted the Question Hour, demanding a debate on political killings and the lynching of the tribal.

Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan requested the Opposition to participate in the Question Hour.

However, the Leader of Opposition Ramesh Chennithala and the rest of the

Congress camp wanted a debate

in place of the Question Hour.

The Congress MLAs staged a walkout from the Assembly and led to proceedings being adjourned for the day.

Earlier the Congress MLAs had created uproar in the Assembly by standing near the Speaker’s chair.

It need be mentioned that in both cases of violence, sympathizers of the CPM and the CPI respectively have been taken into custody by the police.
