Assembly scuffle: Video clippings to be examined tomorrow

Thiruvananthapuram: The video recordings of the Assembly proceedings would be re-examined tomorrow to bring out the truth in connection with the alleged manhandling of a woman Watch and Ward member on Friday.
Sources said the video recordings would be examined in the presence of members of the House and the media. Deploring the incident, Chief Minister Oommen Chandy said he was in favour of visual media being allowed to telecast proceedings of the House live.
The trouble broke out when Watch and Ward formed a human sheild to protect the Speaker as soon as opposition members rushed to the well of the House demanding action against the police official who opened fire at students at Kozhikode recently.

In her complaint to the Speaker, Wach and Ward member V S Rajani Kumari, who was admitted to the Medical College here after the incident, said ” I was manhandled by CPI (M) MLAs, T V Rajesh and James Mathew, as they pushed me back several times.
The UDF leadership has demanded stringent action against Rajesh and James Mathew in connection with the incident.
