Porn scandal: Gowda slams Congress

Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadanada Gowda on Thursday accused Congress of engaging in petty politics.



Bangalore: Facing the heat on porn scandal,
Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadanada Gowda on Thursday accused
Congress of engaging in petty politics, even as the opposition
stepped up its attack demanding the resignation of the BJP
government over the issue.

"We need not learn lessons of morality from Congress
leaders. The whole world knows about the scams the Congress
leaders faced. I myself can cite at least 25 such instances
that involved Congress leaders", Gowda told reporters.

Hitting back at Congress a day after three ministers
resigned after being caught on camera viewing porno clippings
on mobile phones during assembly proceedings, Gowda said the
three had quit voluntarily and had even demanded a probe.

He said a House Committee of the assembly has been set up
to enquire into it and Congress should wait for its report.

Congress has ruled the nation for about 60 years and
several scams have "surfaced against its leaders", he said.

The Chief Minister`s attack came even as Congress members
staged a dharna in front of the Vidhana Soudha, the state
secretariat, demanding BJP government`s resignation and
disqualification of three former ministers from assembly
membership.

Congress legislators headed by Opposition leader in the
assembly Siddaramaiah and KPCC chief G Parameshwara staged the
dharna, shouting slogans against the BJP government.

Addressing the legislators, Parameshwara and Siddaramaiah
said the BJP government has been facing one scandal or the
other ever since it came to power four years ago.

They said there was no need for any house committee to
probe the matter and Speaker KG Bopaiah should disqualify
them from the assembly membership.

Embarrassed by the episode involving Laxman Savadi, CC
Patil and Krishna Palemar, the BJP had yesterday asked them to
step down as ministers after a public and Opposition outcry.
