DMK leader M.K. Stalin has urged Tamil Nadu Governor C.H. Vidyasagar Rao to order a fresh floor test in the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
In a letter submitted to the Tamil Nadu Governor, Stalin said: “Only such an effective intervention will save democracy from being in the hands of a government whose Chief Minister has been elected under dubious circumstances and won the constitutionally mandated vote of confidence by dishonest means.
The very basic features of the floor test in the House stood defeated. The Speaker failed to conduct a lawful test in the House, and in the pandemonium which followed, the Speaker declared that the motion of confidence moved by the newly appointed Chief Minister has been passed and he has won the vote of confidence. We represented to the Governor to nullify the confidence vote on February 18, 2017 itself.”
