Thiruvananthapuram: The ongoing tussle between the ruling coalition and opposition affected the business in the state legislature once again on Friday. The assembly was adjourned for the day within nine minutes of the Assembly convening the session. The assembly was adjourned the other day within 17 minutes.

Protests over the registration of cases against Congress-led UDF legislators under a non-bailable offence in connection with an alleged attack on House marshals during the ruckus in front of the office of Assembly Speaker AN Shamseer two days ago have been affecting the business.

Earlier today, the protest began after the Speaker refused to allow Leader of the Opposition VD Satheesan to raise the issue during Question Hour. The Speaker reportedly turned off VD Satheesan’s microphone. The opposition members protested against the Chair's decision and trooped into the well of the House forcing the Speaker to adjourn the House for the day.
