Bangalore: Opposition Congress on Wednesday said it was contemplating to move a breach of privilege notice against the BJP Government over the leak of report of a legislature committee appointed to look into the October 11 pell-mell in the Assembly.

Opposition Congress leader Siddaramaiah, talking to reports, took strong objection to the leaking of contents of the Appacchu Ranjan Committee to the media.

"When the report has not been tabled in the House, how can it be circulated to the press", he asked.

Siddaramaiah claimed that the using that report, the government was planning to seek disqualification of 20 opposition MLAs.

"Such uproarious scenes have occurred in the house on earlier occasions and no government resorted to anti-democratic methods", he said.

It is believed that the report had blamed Siddaramaiah and others for provoking MLAs during the first trust vote taken by Yeddyurappa on October 11 following withdrawal of support to his government by 16 MLAs, including five independents.
