The Assembly's show of unanimity on the issue came on a private member's resolution, moved by the IUML leader, K.K.N. Khader. Mr Khader had given notice for the resolution on June 28, but the debate had remained inconclusive on that day.
The debate was resumed in the House today, with members from both sides actively participating and demanding voting rights for NRIs, a majority of whom were Keralites.
The Health Minister, who officiated for the Parliamentary Affairs Minister, M.M. Hassan, said that the Government was in full agreement with the sentiments expressed in the resolution. Among those who spoke were K. Mohammed Ali, Manjalikuam Ali, P.S. Supal, K.K. Shaju, Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, and Joseph M. Puthussery.
The Assembly rejected another resolution protesting against the privatisation of FACT.
