Chennai, Jan 11 (UNI) Opposition AIADMK Legislator A K Bose today moved the Madras High Court, challenging the October 19 Tamil Nadu Assembly resolution suspending him from attending the Assembly proceedings for his alleged unruly behaviour.

When the petition came up for hearing, Justice V Dhanapalan directed the petitioner to hand over copies of the petition to the Advocate General and posted the case to January 21 for further hearing.

Mr N Jothi, counsel for the petitioner, sought a stay on the resolution passed by the Assembly since the matter was of urgent importance and the Assembly was scheduled to meet on January 23.

Considering the urgency of the matter, the Judge asked the petitioner to submit the copies of the petition to the Advocate General in person and adjourned the matter.

In his petition, Mr Bose, representing Tiruparankundram in the State Assembly, said the Assembly had neither issued any notice to him nor his explanation was sought by the Speaker, before adopting the resolution.

The resolution passed by the House was violative of Article 21 of the Constitution, he submitted, pleading for quashing the resolution.

Mr Bose was suspended during the late Assembly Session and also for the first ten days of the next session for bringing the House to disrepute by snatching a cap from the watch and ward staff and hurling it at the Speaker.
