Eight Congress MPs have been suspended today from the Lok Sabha for four days after they refused to let the proceedings continue, by shouting slogans demanding a separate Telangana state.
Earlier in the day, the Lok Sabha had been adjourned twice after it witnessed uproar over Telangana and Sri Lanka issue.
The MPs repeatedly rushed to the front rows, raising slogans and waving placards.
They did not relent even after Home Minister P. Chidambaram and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal persuaded them to go back to their seats.
Meanwhile Opposition leader of Tamilnadu, M.K. Karunanidhi, who on repeated occasions had stated that United Nations should hold a referendum to establish a separate Eelam state within Sri Lanka, has expressed his views yet again on the issue.
Karunanidhis's comments on the issue were carried through an article published on the 'Murasoli' news paper which is being considered the mouth peace of the DMK party.
In his article Karunanidhi had stressed that Centre in Delhi should extend their cooperation towards establishing a separatist Tamil state within Sri Lanka.
Further on, Karunanidhi had also stated that irrelevant of the subsidies being offered to the Tamil community, he would not be replete until a Tamil state is realised in Sri Lanka.
