DMK leaders along with the party president MK Stalin went on statewide hunger strike on Wednesday in protest against the eviction of MLAs from the Tamil Nadu Assembly during the vote of confidence on February 18.
On Sunday, the party president sat on a hunger strike at Marina Beach accompanied by his party members as they were manhandled in the Assembly after the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palanisamy winning the vote of confidence which was conducted by open ballot -against the wish of Stalin, Congress and former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam.
They have been evicted from the Assembly after a fight broke out with MLAs breaking of chairs, and Speaker P Dhanapal’s shirt being torn.
However, an FIR was also been lodged against Stalin and other party MLAs for violation of public order.
Meanwhile, the Congress has also extended its support to DMK for the statewide hunger strike.
A massive security has been arranged across the state to prevent any untoward incidents during the time of protest.
