Kerala legislators pay tribute to late MLA Abdul Razak
The Kerala Assembly Tuesday paid rich tributes to MLA P B Abdul Razak who passed away recently.
The homage was paid on the opening day of the 13th session of the House.

Opposition leader in the assembly Ramesh Chennithala, minister Kadakampally Surendran and MLAs O Rajagopal, Anoop Jacob, K B Ganesh Kumar and P C George were among those who shared memories of the IUML legislator.
The House was adjourned for the day after it observed silence as a mark of respect to the departed soul. The business session, scheduled till December 13, will begin Wednesday.
