DMK gets ready to ‘sting’ ruling party in Assembly session

It could not have got any worse for the ruling AIADMK (Amma) and any better for the principal opposition party ahead of the Assembly session due on Wednesday. The ruling party has given perfect fodder to the DMK to corner the treasury benches a day before the Legislative Assembly convenes.

DMK gets ready to ‘sting’ ruling party in Assembly session
DMK Working President MK Stalin


The DMK may bring up one of their favourite topics of no confidence motion, the same issue the party had exploited to paralyse the inaugural day of Edappadi K Palanisamy as Chief Minister earlier. 

Though it was an easy guess that Leader of Opposition MK Stalin and his MLAs would plan big on the issue when the House convenes on Wednesday, the party did not give much thought to the issue when legislators met on Tuesday. 

While it requires no great political wisdom to comprehend that the DMK would raise NEET, prohibition and guideline value revision issues, it has been sufficiently understood that Stalin might table a private members bill pertaining to amendments brought by the Centre on sale of cow for slaughter. 

Notably, its ally Congress is believed to have scheduled its legislature party meeting for Wednesday evening. If sources in the DMK are to be believed, even if the party does not stall the House proceedings, as it did during the no confidence motion, the ruling party could face some serious heat from the Opposition benches on the sting involving the AIADMK MLAs.  

Thirunavukkarasar suspends two Congress functionaries
Meanwhile, state Congress president Su Thirunavukkarasar has suspended two Congress functionaries for the ruckus they had created at party headquarters Sathyamurthy Bhavan last week. Former Tiruvallur district Mahila Congress chief Gowri Gopal and Mohammed Syed Ghiyas Ul Haq, spouse of All India Mahila Congress secretary Haseena Syed, who exchanged blows at the headquarters have been suspended from the party for violating discipline. In a statement on Tuesday, Thirunavukkarasar described as condemnable and indiscipline the act of the duo, who had called names and threw punches following an altercation over Gowri Gopal being expelled from the party allegedly at the behest of Mahila Congress secretary Haseena Syed.
