  • Although the activities of the Governor, who are acting completely contrary to our `Dravidian Model' principles, are unacceptable, we followed the rules of the Assembly and did not register our protest before the Governor started his speech. We behaved very politely in the Assembly and showed full respect to the Governor who had come to address us under the Constitution.
  • However, not only against our policies, but also against the policies of the government, it is not only very regrettable that he did not read the text prepared by the Tamil Nadu government, approved by the governor and printed properly and completely, but also violated the conventions of the Assembly.
  • Therefore, I propose a resolution to relax Rule 17 of the Legislature and that only the English text printed today and given to the members and the Tamil text read by the Speaker should be included in the notes, and similarly, the parts read by the Governor should not be included as opposed to the parts printed here. The Chief Minister spoke thus.
  • When the Chief Minister finished reading this resolution, the Governor inquired from his secretary about what the Chief Minister had said. In this case, when the chairman of the assembly got up to carry out the resolution, the governor suddenly left the assembly.
  • Along with him, the governor's secretary also left. Ahead of the Governor, Opposition Leader Palaniswami and AIADMK MLAs and O. Panneerselvam, his supporting MLAs, walked out of the Assembly.
