A day after he was released from Tihar Jail,DMK MP A Raja attended Parliament for about half-an-hour on Wednesday afternoon. Declining to speak to the media,Raja headed straight to the Lok Sabha with other DMK members like A K S Vijayan and sat in the back row.

“His seat was earlier in the front since he was a minister. I don’t know whether the Lok Sabha secretariat has allocated him a new seat,” said an MP.

However,Raja did not join his colleagues for the group photograph of MPs to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Parliament. “I asked him why he didn’t come in time for the group photograph. He said he wanted to come late,” said DMK leader T K S Elangovan.

After spending a few minutes in the House,Raja went to central hall,where he was greeted by some MPs. Members said he was seen with Vijayan,Dayanidhi Maran,Adhi Shankar and E G Sugavanam.

Asked if Raja would participate in House proceedings,a DMK leader said,“He would like to keep his appearances low-key,participating in a debate would attract unnecessary attention…. Maybe in the next session.”
