An AIADMK MLA was on Thursday suspended from the Tamil Nadu Assembly for a day on April 12 for his alleged attempt "mislead" the House by giving "false" information regarding renovation works in a temple in his constituency.
Holding that Gummidipoondi MLA K S Vijayakumar had brought disrepute to the House by his action, Speaker R Avudaiyappan barred him from attending the proceedings on April 12.
Vijayakumar had attempted to mislead the House by making false allegations, he said.
The AIADMK MLA had on April 5 told the Assembly that the sanctioned works had not begun in the temple.
However, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Minister H R Periakaruppan furnished photographic proof of the ongoing works to the Speaker as well as to the House.
