Chennai News Today Live Updates: Former Tamil Nadu chief minister and Leader of Opposition Edappadi K Palaniswami, along with other AIADMK leaders, were on Wednesday detained while holding a protest against their eviction from the state Assembly. The party had planned to commence a hunger strike at Valluvar Kottam in Chennai today but had failed to receive permission from the police. “This is a murder of democracy. We will protest until we get justice,” Palaniswami said.
On Tuesday, Edappadi K Palaniswami’s MLAs supporting him were evicted from Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly after they created a ruckus over seating arrangements during the second day of the ongoing session in Chennai Tuesday.
The AIADMK had submitted representations to Speaker Appavu to replace former chief minister O Panneerselvam with RB Udhayakumar as the Opposition’s deputy leader and sought the expulsion of OPS and MLAs supporting him.
