The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu won a confidence vote after a brawl in the state assembly, triggered when the speaker rejected opposition calls for a secret ballot. Edappadi Palanisamy won the vote by 121 to 11. The Assembly Speaker called a confidence vote, which opposition group DMK petitioned to be conducted via a secret ballot, arguing this would reveal deep divisions in the ruling party. The speaker refused to grant the request and, after a brawl that broke out, ejected DMK lawmakers from the chamber. Condemning the voting process conducted in the Assembly after evicting the Opposition, state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Tamilisai Soundararajan said that the voting was a democratic process which had been conducted in an undemocratic way. She further said that the voting which took place was against the wish and will of the people of Tamil Nadu, as the people wanted a government free from corruption and stable government. Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president M.K. Stalin and other MLAs were detained by police for protesting against the floor test result at Chennai's Marina Beach. Former Union Minister and Congress leader M. Veerappa Moily termed it as a 'black day' in the history of democracy and accused Tamil Nadu Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao for not functioning according to the Constitution.
