Ahead of Finance Minister Palanivel Thiaga Rajan’s presentation of the DMK government’s first Budget, Leader of the Opposition K. Palaniswami stood up and started speaking.
The Speaker Appavu refused permission to Palaniswami, saying that the latter can speak on Monday as the Budget will have to be presented first.
Appavu then asked Rajan to present the state’s first paperless electronic Budget.
In protest, the AIADMK members walked out of the House.
