Video screening of Kerala assembly brawl

Kerala Legislative AssemblyThiruvananthapuram: Under the leadership of the speaker G. Karthikeyan, the video recordings of the Kerala Legislative  proceedings  that ended in a brawl would be examined at the speakers chamber today at 5 pm. Representative members of the ruling party and the opposition would be present.

The media’s entry has been prohibited. The Chief Minister hopes that the examination of the videos would bring out the truth about the Opposition allegation that the Watch and Ward had used force against the Opposition members.

The opposition party members who claimed that The DGP report on the Kozhikode firing was leaked, entered the well of the house and held a sit in protest while the assembly was in session. The speaker ignoring the slogans raised by the opposition proceeded with the legislature proceedings. When the agitated opposition moved towards the speakers desk the watch and ward staff tried to block the members. This ended in a free for all and brawl between the watch and ward staff and the opposition members.

The opposition later stated that  MLA K K Lathika and T V Rajesh were injured during the squabble. The ruling party in turn accused the opposition of hurting the lady watch and ward Rajinikumari. The speaker shall arrive at a decision regarding this after viewing the tapes today in the evening.
