Leading a delegation of senior DMK leaders, he told the President that the incidents leading to the Governor calling for a floor test itself has “greatly shook the conscience of the people, who respect the values of the Constitution of this great nation”.

He said the assembly session was convened hastily and the Speaker arbitrarily refused to yield to the demand for a secret ballot. He said the MLAs of DMK were evicted forcefully from the assembly.
