While the Governor remained silent, Opposition members started raising slogans against the DMK government as soon as Paneerselvam finished reading the statement.
The AIADMK members then proceeded to the well and started raising slogans, disrupting the Governor's address.
Speaker R Avudaiyappan immediately summoned the marshals and asked them to evict the opposition members, comprising AIADMK, CPI, CPI(M) and MDMK. AIADMK members also raised slogans on the 2G spectrum scam.
High drama prevailed for a few minutes when AIADMK members, along with other opposition members arrived dressed in black outfits and resisted the marshals, resulting in chaos.
While some AIADMK members were physically removed by the marshals, others were escorted outside.
CPI(M) floor leader Bala Bharati was also among those who were physcially removed by women marshals.
Earlier, some AIADMK members came to the assembly wearing garlands made out of vegetables to symbolically protest the soaring prices of vegetables.
