Bangalore: Opposition Congress in the Karnataka
assembly has moved a no-confidence motion against Speaker KG
Bopaiah.

Congress has cited delay by the Speaker in accepting
resignation tendered by B Sreeramulu to his assembly
membership and his "pro-government stance" in its motion of
no-confidence.

"Congress has moved a motion against me. They have done it
under the rules of the House. That`s all I can say now",
Bopaiah told reporters while briefing on the upcoming assembly
session beginning from December five.

According to Assembly legislature secretariat sources, the
Congress submitted the motion against the speaker yesterday.

As per the tentative programme schedule released by the
assembly secretariat, the legislature will meet till December
16, indicating that the motion could be taken up either on
December 14 or on December 15.

This is the second motion being moved by Congress as the
earlier one lapsed following abrupt adjournment of the session
in July.

Meanwhile opposition Congress leader in the assembly
Siddaramaiah told reporters that his party has given a motion
of no-confidence against the Speaker.
