UDF boycotts Health Minister in assembly

Opposition Congress-led UDF in Kerala continued its agitation in the state assembly for the second day demanding resignation of Health and Social Welfare Minister K.K Shailaja for alleged misuse of power.

The opposition sought to raise the issue of Kerala High Court’s criticism made in connection with admissions in self-financing medical colleges in the state by way of an adjournment motion.

They started protesting when Shailaja began replying to the the notice for the motion and wanted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to speak on the issue saying they have decided to boycott the Health Minister in the House.

The Question Hour also witnessed similar protest by the opposition members when Shailaja stood up to answer.

On Monday, the UDF had attacked the health minister over the strictures passed against her by the court while quashing the appointment of two members, including a CPI(M) leader, to the Kerala State Commission For Protection Of Child Rights.

Meanwhile, UDF MLAs V.P Sajeendran, N. Shamsuddin, Roji M. John, Eldose Kunnappally and T.V Ibrahim continued their ‘satyagraha’ for the second day demanding Shailaja’s resignation.
