Tamil Nadu assembly session: Governor, DMK allies stage walk out after row over Ravi's opening speech

DMK MLAs also raised slogans against the Governor, saying "don't impose BJP, RSS.

Tamil Nadu Assembly witnessed ruckus immediately after Governor R N Ravi began his customary address of the opening session on Monday. Legislators of the ruling DMK and its allies, the Congress and the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) started raising slogans against the Governor for his recent remarks that 'Tamizhagam' rather than 'Tamil Nadu'would be more appropriate name for the State and staged a walkout from the assembly.

DMK MLAs also raised slogans against the Governor, saying "don't impose BJP, RSS
ideology."

The DMK and allies opposed the Governor's stand and accused him of toeing the
BJP's ideological position. "This is not Nagaland, this is proud Tamil Nadu," the legislators raised sloganeering. However, Governor Ravi continued delivering his address amid the uproar. There was also a demand to ban online gambling by the leaders in the assembly. Legislators protested putting the blame on the Governor who has not yet given his assent to the Bill banning online gambling.

The state is witnessing a tussle between the ruling DMK regime and the Raj Bhavan
over several bills which are pending with the Governor including the one prohibiting
online gambling, and wager-based online games of chance of Rummy.
