Marshals were called to escort the DMK members out after they tore up copies of the committee's report and shouted slogans while massing near Speaker P Dhanapal.

The Privileges Committee had recommended that Mr Karunanidhi should be condemned for attributing comments to a minister who denied making them.

After the resolution accepting the committee's recommendation was passed, Speaker Dhanapal said Mr Karunanidhi should not do such things again. This triggered the DMK fury.
