Chennai: The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and its allies chose to boycott Governor Banwarilal Purohit's maiden address on Monday, as the first assembly session of the year commenced with a noisy prelude.
The session began today amid a state-wide transportation strike over revision of wages for workers. Chief Minister Edapaddi K Palaniswami (L) and deputy CM O Panneerselvam (C) are seated in the front row. The transport union's strike entered the seventh day on Wednesday.
The striking unions want the factor for wage revision to be fixed at 2.57 times, even as the government is insisting on 2.44 times. The issue triggered uproarious scenes in the Assembly this week with Palaniswami seeking the cooperation of Leader of Opposition MK Stalin (DMK) and others in bringing the strike to an end.
Opposing the bill, Dhinakaran asked the Tamil Nadu government how they could double the salary of MLAs when they were unwilling to pay striking bus drivers.
As many as 17 trade unions launched the indefinite strike from January 4, with scores of Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation (TNSTC) staff joining the protest.
A little later, Stalin led his party members and staged a walkout, followed by his party's allies, Congress and IUML.
The High Court reiterates that public should not be inconvenienced with festive season around the corner, says, the government should immediately implement the wage hike of 2.44%. When transport workers are demanding their arrears, some from 2013, why introduce this pay hike bill?
The chief minister also rejected the Opposition charge that he had not held talks with the trade unions.
