Stalin's Personal Assistant in Tamil Nadu assembly removed
CHENNAI: The personal assistant of leader of the opposition in the Tamil Nadu assembly has been removed from the post, just 14 days after the appointment.
An officer named Adiseshan from the assembly department was appointed as PA for leader of the opposition M K Stalin on August 8. However, a letter from the department on August 22 said the officer had been removed from the post.
The removal of the PA happened after speaker P Dhanapal suspended 79 DMK legislators, including Stalin, for a week from the assembly on August 17.
On Tuesday, DMK whip R Sakkarapani and Tiruvanamalai MLA E V Velu met speaker P Dhanapal at his office and submitted a letter urging him to appoint a PA for Stalin.
"We met the speaker and presented a letter with all details about when the PA was appointed and when he was removed. We also attached the rules under which a PA can be appointed," said Sakkarapani.
