CHENNAI: The DMK that gave a notice to Assembly Secretary on February 21 for moving a ‘no confidence motion’ against Assembly Speaker P Dhanapal, on Thursday submitted another notice for ‘removal of Speaker’.  


Senior functionaries of DMK K Ponmudi and E V Velu met Assembly Secretary A M P Jamaludeen and gave the notice. 


Assembly sources said the DMK had filed the second notice as it was found that their earlier notice for moving a ‘no confidence motion’ against the Speaker was not in proper format and hence, it was unlikely to be taken up for consideration.


The DMK is expected to raise the issue of no-confidence against the Speaker on March 16 ahead of the presentation of first budget of ‘Edappadi’ K Palaniswami’s government.


Assembly sources said since the notice was served well ahead of the 14 days period, it should be taken up for discussion on March 16 as per the rules. However, since it was not in the required format, it was unlikely to be taken up on March 16 and that it would ‘automatically lapse.’


Now, the fresh notice for ‘removal of Speaker’ can be raised after 14 days, i.e., during the budget session.  
After uproarious scenes in the State Assembly on February 18 when the Palaniswami government sought confidence vote, DMK members were evicted en masse before the trial of strength.
