DMK boycotts budget presentation in TN assembly, stages walkout
As soon as the House convened for the budget and for tabling the demands for advance grants, Speaker P Dhanapal called Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam to present the interim financial statement.
However, DMK Deputy leader Duraimurugan was on his feet and sought the Chair's permission to express the party's 'view'.
The Speaker replied that the budget has to be tabled and whatever the DMK leader spoke would not go on record.
Following this, all the DMK members stood up and sought the Speaker's permission to allow Duraimurugan to convey the party's opinion.As Panneerselvam began reading the budget, DMK members walked out after raising slogans for a while against the government. VGN ROH ROH
