CHENNAI: A delegation of parliamentarians from opposition parties would meet the President regarding the issue of ordering a floor test in the wake of Edappadi K Palaniswami-led government losing majority, DMK working president M K Stalin said on Tuesday.
“We have sought an appointment and have received information that time will be allotted on August 31,” Stalin told reporters here.
Not only MPs from his party, but members also from the Congress, the CPI, the CPI (M) and the IUML will meet the President and take up the matter with him, he added.
Replying to a question on the notice issued by the Privileges Committee of Assembly, Stalin said that legal recourse would be sought in consultation with experts.
He questioned the rationale behind taking up the issue of privileges 40 days after DMK members raised in the House the sale of gutka substantiated with photographs and addresses of shops that sold the contraband.
Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC) president S Thirunavukkarasar, who paid a personal visit to the Raj Bhavan, told reporters he had reminded Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao of the memorandum submitted by DMK and Congress.
