Chennai, Feb 17 (IANS) DMK president M.Karunanidhi on Wednesday announced his party will not participate in the assembly proceedings owing to the arrogant attitude of the ruling AIADMK.

In a statement issued here, he said the ruling party members are allowed to speak anything about him or his family and it goes on record whereas the remarks of senior law makers of his party are expunged.

Karunanidhi said given this situation, the party has decided not to participate in the assembly proceedings and take the issue to the people’s court.

On Wednesday, DMK legislators were evicted when they protested against a remark by the ruling party member apparently referring to their party treasuer M.K.Stalin’s son-in-law.

The DMK members demanded the remark be expunged while the speaker said he would look into the records and take a decision.
