MK Stalin sits on hunger strike against trust vote
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leaders, accompanied by party working president MK Stalin, sat on a state-wide hunger strike in Tamil Nadu’s Trichy today to protest against the ruckus in the state Assembly on Saturday during the E. Palanisamy trust vote. The DMK working president was protesting for manhandling his MLAs in the Assembly. AIADMK’s Palaniswami won a dramatic floor test, with the speaker throwing out opposition DMK members for violence and Congress legislators walking out of the House. An FIR was later lodged against Stalin, his party MLAs, MPs and cadres for holding a protest at Marina beach against an alleged attack on him and his MLAs during the trust vote.
