Thiruvanthapuram, Jan 21: Protests have got louder after reports emerged on Sunday that Kerala Chief Minister Pirayi Vijayan was planning to withdraw cases filed against six legislators for vandalism inside the assembly in 2015. Vijayan has taken up the issue with the concerned departments. On March 13, 2015, then Fince Minister KM Mani was presenting the budget for a new fiscal when the CPI-M-led opposition took a stand that Mani, who was under a cloud over allegedly taking a bribe from a bar owner, will not be allowed to present the budget. That day chaos broke out in the Assembly, with angry Left legislators throwing the Speaker’s chair out of the dais and damaging microphones. The damage was estimated at Rs 6 lakh. (IANS)
