THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: K S Sabarinathan, the newly elected people’s representative of Aruvikkara, took his oath as a member of the 13th Kerala Legislative Assembly on Wednesday. He took his oath in the name of God, while Speaker N Sakthan administered the oath of office and secrecy. The oath-taking ceremony was held at 9.30 am, after the day’s Question Hour was over. Sabarinathan’s mother M T Sulekha and brother K S Ananda Padmanabhan and other family members, as well as a small group of close friends and well-wishers were present at the visitors’ and Speaker’s gallery to witness the function. Sabarinathan arrived in the Assembly around 8.45 am. He waited near the entrance of the Assembly hall, through which the Chief Minister and ministers enter the House.

When the Speaker invited Sabarinathan to the Hall, he was greeted by the ruling party MLAs with heavy thumping of the desks. He took the blessings of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other ministers in the front row, and also moved to the side of the leaders of  Opposition parties for the same. Speaker N Sakthan read out the oath of office and secrecy to the new member. He later signed his papers. After that, Sabarinathan moved to  the podium of the Speaker and took his  blessings.

When Government Chief Whip Thomas Unniyadan was taking Sabarinathan to his seat, the ruling front MLAs jostled to greet him. The crowding in the hall prompted the Speaker to call Sabarinathan  by his name and ask him to go to his seat, leaving a trail of laughter around.

As a new member of  the House, he was allotted his seat in the back row of the treasury benches. Once he was seated, the ruling front MLAs continued to go near him and wish him all the best.

Sabarinathan, 31, is the juniormost member in the House now, overtaking the stature of Hibi Eden MLA, who is elder to him by one year. With Sabarinathan’s entry, the House also turned a unique chapter wherein Speaker N Sakthan administered the oath of office to a father and his son in the same House.
