According to the reports that Stalin told the media later that the expulsion and suspension of the MLAs of DMK party was a planned action to prevent them from raising issues during the demand for debate for grants to the Home Department, which is being handled by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
Stalin claimed that every day, ruling party’s Ministers and legislators were making comments deliberately to provoke the MLAs of DMK into launching a protest.
