When the assembly session commenced at 9 a.m, of opposition got up and demanded that Sabarimala should be taken up for discussion by suspending the question hour.

replied: "Since everything was said yesterday, there is no need even for seeking leave for moving an motion and hence the suspending of question hour, need not be taken up at all."
