Chennai: The one-week suspension of DMK legislators from the Tamil Nadu assembly will not be revoked, Speaker P Dhanapal said on Thursday.
When the issue was raised in the assembly by lawmakers of the Congress and DMK parties (members who were not present in the House on Wednesday), Dhanapal said the suspension could not be revoked.
Meanwhile Leader of the Opposition in the assembly, DMK's MK Stalin, and other lawmakers of DMK held a sit-in protest at the entrance of the assembly as they were not allowed to enter their chambers.
Stalin said the assembly proceedings should be telecast live so that people will know what is happening inside the House.
On Wednesday Dhanapal suspended 80 DMK members including Stalin for a week for unruly behaviour in the House.
The DMK has 89 members in the 234-member assembly.
