The AIADMK MLAs were reportedly miffed with the Coimbatore district collector for receiving their petition while remaining seated on the chair.
Former Tamil Nadu assembly deputy speaker Pollachi Jayaraman and other All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) MLAs on Thursday reportedly took exception to Coimbatore district collector receiving a petition from them while sitting on a chair.
The incident took place on Thursday when the AIADMK MLAs went to hand over a petition to District Collector Sameeran regarding continuing the ongoing projects announced by the earlier AIADMK government.
The Coimbatore district collector was sitting on his chair and extended his arm to take the petition. This irked former deputy speaker Pollachi Jayaraman, who asked “You won’t get up from the seat?”.
District Collector Sameeran immediately got up, but Pollachi Jayaraman said, “This is not correct behavior.”
Immediately, other AIADMK MLAs also raised their voice against the collector, while Pollachi Jayaraman and Mettupalayam AK Selvaraj repeatedly asked the collector “what kind of behavior is this?”.
