Speaker MB Rajesh had equated Khilafat leader Variyan Kunnathu Kunjahammed Haji to Bhagat Singh at a function on the 100th anniversary of the Malabar Rebellion.
Kundara MLA PC Vishnunath will be the UDF candidate contesting for the Speaker post.
The opposition leader began by seeking 'fair' space for the opposition, indirectly implying that it was denied under Rajesh's predecessor P Sreeramakrishnan.
Senior advocate T A Shaji has been appointed as the Director General of Prosecution.
Contradicting Sarith and Swapna’s statements, Sreeramakrishnan had told the Customs that he had handed over an empty bag and there was no money in it.
The Speaker was questioned by the Customs over a dollar smuggling case at the weekend.
Earlier on Thursday, Chief Minister Pinaray Vijayan and former CM Oommen Chandy had also tested positive for coronavirus.
The Speaker's office confirmed that he was questioned at his Thiruvananthapuram residence on Friday evening by a team led by Customs Superintendent Salil.
The leaked document said the Speaker handed over a bag containing the money to Swapna and Sarith at a flat in Royal Apartments, opposite the Trivandrum International Airport.
The official reason given for the shortening of the session is the need to reduce the exposure of members to COVID-19, which continues to rage in Kerala.
