Thiruvananthapuram: Protests broke out in the Kerala Legislative Assembly on Friday over the solar scam as opposition LDF lawmakers staged a walk-out during Governor P. Sathasivam’s speech on the opening day of the budget session.
However, in an extraordinary move, Sathasivam publicly acknowledged the Opposition Left Democratic Front’s protests against the Oommen Chandy Government and urged the Opposition to take their case to the people, rather than disrupting his address.
Sathasivam did not begin his speech till the Leader of the Opposition V.S. Achuthanandan was through with his statement on the corruption charges against the state government.
The Opposition began disrupting Sathasivam’s speech with slogans seeking resignation of the Oommen Chandy government over the solar scam and the bar bribery row. (ANI)
