Opposition boycotts panel meet on porn scandal

Last Updated: Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 15:48

Bangalore: The Karnataka Assembly committee
set up to probe the porn scandal involving three former
ministers met for the first time here on Wednesday amid boycott of
the proceedings by opposition Congress and JDS.

All the four members of the ruling BJP were present, but
the two representatives from Congress and another from JDS
nominated to the panel by Speaker K G Bopaiah did not show up.

Panel chairman Srishailappa Bidarur told reporters that the
meeting has been postponed to February 29.

He appealed to the Congress and JDS members to participate
in the committee proceedings and offer their views.

The Speaker has set March 13 deadline for the committee to
submit its findings on the watching of alleged sleazy film on
mobile by Laxman Savadi and C C Patil and Krishna Palemar
during the Assembly session on February 7. The trio had
resigned as ministers a day after the incident.

The three disgraced MLAs have already furnished their
replies to a showcause notice served on them by the Speaker.

Demanding the immediate disqualification of the three from
the assembly, Congress and JDS have taken a view that there is
no need for any probe into the `misconduct` of the three as
the act was caught on camera and telecast by regional TV
channels.
