Thiruvananthapuram: The Museum police Saturday registered cases against the legislators of the LDF Opposition for damaging public property during the unprecedented ruckus in the State Assembly yesterday.
The cases were registered on a complaint filed by secretary of the Kerala Assembly, citing that the property worth of Rs. 5 lakh was damaged.
The State Assembly witnessed unruly scenes on the budget presentation day Friday as ruling and opposition members engaged in a scuffle over presentation of state budget by Finance Minister K M Mani, who is facing bribery allegations in the bar scam, which shook the state recently.
Though the Opposition members, who tried to prevent Mani, vandalised the speakers' podium, Mani managed to present his record 13th budget.
Meanwhile, the dawn-to-dusk hartal called by CPI(M)-led LDF Opposition in protest against the violence in the Kerala Assembly hit normal life today but was by and large peaceful, except for some stray incidents of stone throwing.
To protest against the violence incidents in the Assembly, ruling front UDF is observing a 'black day' tomorrow.
