Bangalore: Criticizing the BJP for `delaying`
action against three ministers who quit over the porn row, JDS
leader H D Kumaraswamy on Wednesday said Speaker KG Bopaiah should
immediately remove them from the Assembly membership and
restore the dignity of the House.
The inquiry ordered into the incident was a ploy by the
ruling party to delay taking action against Laxman Savadi, CC Patil and Krishna Palemar, caught on camera watching a
sleazy video in the assembly, he told reporters here.
"There is no need for an inquiry into the porngate episode
in this era of electronic media where the (TV) footage clearly
showed Savadi watching the obscene video on his mobile during
House proceedings," the former chief minister contended.
He accused the BJP of promoting a new culture of "Baarah
Khoon Maaf" (12 murders pardoned) culture to save its `wobbly`
to save its `wobbly` government.
"The BJP Government in the state is promoting and abetting
the new culture of "Baaraah Khoon Maaf", where it does not
pronounce their leaders or ministers guilty until they have
been found guilty in eleven cases," he said.
He urged the BJP to immediately take action against the
`tainted` trio to allay the `hurt` feelings of sincere RSS
workers who "relentlessly worked hard" to bring the BJP to
power in South India.
