THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Assembly witnessed some dramatic scenes after Mathew Kuzhalnadan MLA read out the ED's remand report in the Karuvannur Cooperative Bank scam in the House. During the discussion over the Kerala Cooperative Sangh Bill, the MLA read the remand report while disregarding the opposition of the Speaker and the ruling party. The Speaker and Mathew Kuzhalnadan then got into an argument over this. Following this, the Speaker turned off the MLA's microphone.

The problems started when Mathew Kuzhalnadan started reading out the remand report of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the House. The Speaker told Kuzhalnadan that the Karuvannur bank scam was discussed earlier in the House and only the bill should be discussed. The Speaker further said that the part regarding the remand report will be omitted from the assembly records. As Kuzhalnadan continued reading despite the Speaker's warning, the Speaker asked him to show minimum courtesy. He also said that he would turn off Kuzhalnadan's mic if he continued reading the report. Later, the argument escalated and the Speaker turned off Mathew Kuzhalnadan's mic. The said parts were removed from the Sabha TV.

Meanwhile, MLA KK Rema reacted strongly to the verbal dispute between the Speaker and Mathew Kuzhalnadan. KK Rema said in the House that she felt as if she was sitting in Narendra Modi's House.
