Reportedly the main opposition party in the state, the DMK, walked out of the tamilnadu assembly on monday during the first legislative session for the year. Meanwhile the session began with an address by governor banwarilal purohit, which was interrupted by DMK President and leader of the Opposition, MK Stalin. stalin called for a resolution to be passed against the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), which has triggered massive protests across the country. Furthermore treasury benches comprising chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami and deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam, looked on as members of the Opposition rose and raised slogans against the CAA. stalin had earlier submitted a private resolution to the assembly Secretary seeking to withdraw the CAA.
Hence amid the furore, the governor requested the leader of the Opposition to use 'his oratory skill and debate later on'. He said “This house should be used for the debate. This is my request". Perhaps stalin said, “These are the reasons we have walked out: the debt of the state has risen to Rs 4 lakh crore, industrial development and job opportunities are absent, the current Council of Ministers had passed a resolution on the release of the seven (convicts in the assassination of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi) including Perarivalan and sent it to the same Governor. There has been no news forthcoming from the Governor.”
Moreover he said, “At a time when the citizenship amendment act has been brought, which affects the secularism and peace of this country, the AIADMK has supported it. The caa became law because of AIADMK's support. Its passage betrays minorities and Sri Lankan Tamils. Also the leaders who walked out also condemned the violence against jawaharlal nehru university students in New delhi on sunday evening, calling for immediate action to punish the perpetrators.
