However, DMK deputy leader Duraimurugan was on his feet and asked for the president’s permission to express the party’s “point of view”. The President replied that the budget must be tabled and that what the head of the DMK said would not be recorded.

Following this, all members of the DMK stood up and asked for the President’s permission to allow Duraimurugan to convey the party’s opinion.
