(1) Resolution for Removal of Shri. D. Damodaran Potti-
The following resolution given notice of by Shri. P. Govinda Pillai on 4th October 1969 was mentioned in the House on
6th October, 1964.
"The Kerala Legislative Assembly notes with regret that the Speaker has committed a series of irregularities and improprieties and given a number of untenable and contradictory rulings. He has spoken in public and to the press outside in a manner derogatory to the dignity and harmful to the smooth functioning of the Assembly. On 22nd August, he refused to give a ruling on an important point of order and on 3rd October he misrepresented the proceedings of the Assembly to the press. He stated outside that the Assembly passed a resolution, which in fact was never put to vote at all. He left the Assembly in huf and stated to the press that it was voted upon and passed. This amounts to a breach of privilege. There is reason to believe that these gross irregularities were perpetrated to serve certain political interests at the bidding of certain political parties with whom he has entered into an unholy alliance.
Hence this House resolves that the Speaker be removed from his office for his partisan and illegal conduct."
Shri. P. Govinda pillai withdrew his notice on 17-10-1969.Hence the matter was not discussed by the House.
