Oppn troops to well of house, Assembly adjourned for the day

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Assembly has been adjourned for the day following opposition uproar on the first day of the last session of the 13th Kerala Assembly. The opposition stalled proceedings demanding the resignation of Minister K Babu in the bar case as soon as the question hour began in the morning.

The opposition, who reached the assembly with placards and banners shouted slogans seeking the resignation of Babu. When the opposition sought discussion on the issue after suspending question hour, the speaker while replying said the adjournment motion shall be considered during zero hour. The question hour continued in the midst of the logjam.

Opposition deputy leader Kodiyer Balakrishnan sought seeking leave for an adjournment motion during zero hour. He alleged that there are two kinds of justice for Mani and Babu. Mani, who accepted a bribe of Rs one crore is out and Babu, who accepted 10 crore is in, he said sarcastically.

However, while replying Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala said the case cannot be taken forward legally as the probe on the bar bribe allegation against Minister K Babu has ended.  Neither the government nor the vigilance has dual justices on the probe in the bar case. The vigilance can investigate without registering the case. Vigilance director Winson M Paul conducted the probe in a good manner. Case against Mani and Babu are different. A statement was first obtained that the allegation against Babu was wrong, Chennithala informed the house.
