The Tamil Nadu legislative assembly which concluded its proceedings on Thursday will resume business from April 6th onwards. The Tamil Nadu assembly Speaker, M. Appavu said this while briefing media at his chamber hall in the assembly.

The legislative assembly Speaker said that the House’s Business Advisory Committee would meet on March 30th to discuss and decide on the duration of the session. He said that the Question Hour would be scheduled as usual.

When asked about the space crunch at the Fort St. George Assembly hall where the session is being held, Speaker said, “The Chief Minister would think over the issue and then make a decision.”

It is to be noted that the Tamil Nadu legislative assembly was shifted from the more spacious Kalaivnar Arangam on Wallajah road to the old assembly hall at Fort St. George.

He also defended the Finance minister, Palanivel Thiagarajan not present in the house during the recent session when the AIADMK deputy floor leader and former Chief Minister, O. Panneerselvam was speaking on the general budget and said that the minister had informed him of his absence.

Speaker said that AIADMK should not have conducted a walk-out over the issue as the Chief Minister was present in the house when the Finance minister had gone out and the opposition found fault without any reason.

He also said that he didn’t pursue the bills that were sent to the Governor’s office and said that after the bills were passed in the house, the responsibility of the Speaker ends and added that the Chief Minister and other ministers would take up the matter with the Rajbhavan.
