As soon as zero hour began, the two TDP members began protesting, shouting slogans and came near the chairman's podium, prompting Kurien to say: "I will again have to take action against you... Don't make me do the unpleasant job."

But both members continued their protest and Kurien announced he was suspending them, eliciting protests by AIADMK member V Maitreyan and Trinamool Congress member Derek O' Brien.

Kurien then suspended the two members and briefly adjourned the house.
