DMK moves Madras High Court challenging trust vote


Team Udayavani, Feb 20, 2017, 1:17 PM IST

Chennai: Opposition DMK today moved the Madras High Court seeking to declare Saturday’s vote of confidence in the Tamil Nadu Assembly null and void.

Counsel for DMK, R Shanmugasundaram, a former Rajya Sabha member, also sought an urgent hearing of the petition.

The bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Huluvadi G Ramesh and Justice R Mahadeven posted the petition for hearing tomorrow.

E K Palaniswami had won the trust vote 122-11 in the 234-member assembly aided by the eviction of main opposition DMK and walkout by its allies, amid stormy scenes during which mikes were uprooted, chairs toppled and sheets of papers torn.

The division vote was taken up after two adjournments following tempestuous scenes during which the opposition MLAs insisted on a secret vote, which was rejected by Speaker P Dhanapal.
