Gold smuggling case: Oppn serves notice for removal of Kerala Assembly Speaker

Thiruvananthapuram, Jul 16 (UNI) Opposition Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) on Thursday served a notice to the Kerala Legislative Assembly Secretary to remove Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan from the post.
Manjeri MLA M Ummer served the notice as per Act 65, alleging that the Speaker disgraced the Assembly by inaugurating the shop of an accused in the diplomatic baggage gold smuggling case.
The Speaker who was in close links with those who involved in the diplomatic baggage gold smuggling case should not continue in the post, he added.
Meanwhile, Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala on Wednesday said the Opposition was planning to bring a no-confidence motion against the Speaker.
Pointing out that a lot of money was spent for various construction activities in the State Legislative Assembly, Mr Chennithala further said no other Speaker had spent this much money during their tenure in the history of the State Assembly.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA), probing the case, believes that the accused in the gold smuggling case was involved in anti-national activities.
The Opposition served the notice in view of the Government decision to convene the State Assembly on July 27. As per the rules, the notice should be served before 14 days prior to the convening of the Assembly. Hence, the notice which violates the rules, may be rejected by the Legislative Secretary.
