Opposition leaders staged a sit-in protest in front of the Assembly, demanding the resignation of the Left government-led by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

 

The first day of the 22nd and final session of the 14th Kerala legislative assembly began on Friday with intense protests from the Opposition against the ruling front, while Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan began his policy address.

The opposition leaders staged a walkout from the Assembly as the Governor began his inaugural address. 

Amid the ruckus, Khan reminded that no obstruction should take place while the Governor is carrying out his constitutional duty.

Opposition leaders staged a sit-in protest in front of the Assembly, demanding the resignation of the Left government-led by chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The Opposition shouted slogans against CM and raised banners from the well of the house when the governor began his address.

The opposition also demanded that the Speaker be removed from the post over his alleged involvement in the gold smuggling case and the dollar smuggling cases. The opposition has also given notice to move a resolution against the Speaker.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Assembly Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan said that he is not against moving any resolution.
