Chennai, Oct 16 (UNI) A stormy session of the Tamil Nadu Assembly is in the offing, when it meets tomorrow, with opposition AIADMK gearing up to rake up the issue of government ''defying'' the Supreme court order, staying the bandh on October one.

The AIADMK, which had already filed a contempt application in the apex court, is expected to raise the issue and pin down the ruling DMK, when the House meets for a brief monsoon session.

The DMK would be anxious to enact a law, replacing the ordinance, providing exclusive reservation for Christian and Muslim minorities, but the opposition AIADMK would try to embarass the government, taking cue from Supreme court Judge B N Agrawal's remarks against the government over the bandh issue.

When the AIADMK complained that a bandh was observed in the state on October one, despite the stay, the judge, observing that it amounted to constitutional breakdown, had threatened to recommend the Centre to dismiss the government.

DMK President and Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's controversial remarks against Lord Ram and ''Ram sethu'' (Adam's bridge), might also be dragged into the debate, when the House discuss about the implementation of Sethusamudram Shipping Channel Project (SSCP).

With AIADMK, the BJP and other Sangh Parivars, protesting against the demolition of Ram sethu, the DMK, with the support of its allies, including the Congress, PMK and the Left parties, might move a resolution, urging the Centre to implement the project expeditiously, without changing the present sixth alignment.
