THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Assembly Tuesday witnessed some uproarious scenes on the second day also after opposition attacked the LDF government over the fees in the self-financing colleges. The opposition reached the assembly wearing a black badge and holding placards and protested by shouting slogans during question hour. They protested while Finance Minster Dr Thomas Isaac was replying. The placards carried the demands to end the loot in the self-financing issue and to cancel the deal.
