Chennai: Leader of the Opposition M K Stalin today alleged that he was “manhandled” by police personnel and marshals in the Tamil Nadu assembly following ruckus, during which his shirt was torn.

The DMK leader got out from his car outside the Secretariat and showed some media personnel his torn shirt, allegedly after being attacked by police and marshals at the assembly.

“As soon as the Assembly was adjourned till 1 PM, we all went inside the Speaker’s (P Dhanapal) room and he shed crocodile tears saying his shirt was torn during the ruckus. I told him if it had occurred knowingly or unknowingly, I take responsibility and on behalf of DMK, extended my regrets to him,” he said.

Stating that he requested Dhanapal to convene the session and ensure that secret ballot takes place as insisted by DMK, Stalin said “he (Dhanapal) did not accede to our demand”.

“(Due to the ruckus) again the proceedings were adjourned till 3 PM. But around 500 police personnel, led by Additional Commissioner of Police Seshasayee entered the Assembly and manhandled us by hitting us with shoes,” he said.

“Now we have given a letter to the Speaker to postpone the Session,” he said, adding they were proceeding to Raj Bhavan to meet Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao to explain the incidents that occurred in the Assembly.
