Two Opposition Dravida Munettra Kazhagam members of Legislative Assembly were evicted from Tamil Nadu Assembly following a heated exchange of words with rival All India Anna Dravida Munetra Kazhagam legislators.
Noisy scenes were witnessed when Revenue minister C Ve Shanmugam made some remarks on an alleged scam during the previous DMK regime which did not go down well with the Opposition members.
Despite Speaker D Jayakumar's repeated pleas, DMK member J Anbazhagan remained standing and was seen shouting at the former, following which he directed the Marshals to evict him.
Later, the finance minister and leader of the House O Panneerselvam alleged that another DMK member S S Sivasankar made some gestures at the Chair and demanded that he be evicted. The Speaker ruled in favour of Panneerselvam and ordered the eviction of Sivasankar.
Other DMK members staged a walkout protesting the eviction.
