Although the Congress-led UDF got here ready to take up the matter as an adjournment movement within the Meeting and raised slogans towards Cheriyan charging him with ‘humiliating’ the Structure and its architects, Speaker M B Rajesh immediately introduced that the Home was adjourned for the day.

Terming the Speaker’s motion as “unprecedented”, the opposition leaders later met him at his workplace and conveyed their displeasure over his sudden resolution for the early adjournment and alleged that the federal government and the ruling entrance had been making an attempt to keep away from their questions.
