After this, Speaker M Appavu read out the Tamil translation of the Governor’s address. However, after the Governor skipped certain parts, Chief Minister Stalin moved a resolution to retain the entire printed speech of the Governor in the Assembly records.

Stalin moving the resolution said that it was very “sad” that the Governor skipped the printed speech approved by the Assembly. He said, “What he has done is against the policy of the government and the rules of the Assembly. So we move this resolution relaxing Rule 17 of the State Assembly to retain the entire speech.” (He made the statement in Tamil)
