New Delhi: Condemning BJP for the porn clip
controversy in Karnataka Assembly, Congress on Wednesday said the
Opposition party has lowered the image of politics and
politicians by such acts and the incident showed the "hiatus"
between preaching and practice by the Opposition party.

"To watch this kind of obscene video in the legislative
assembly is not only unfortunate but also in a way lowering
the image of politics and politicians. Respect for politicians
is falling in these countries due to these very reasons.

It looks BJP does not want to leave even one facet of
corruption. This is BJP`s real face," party spokesperson
Rashid Alvi said.

Terming it as an issue of "moral corruption", Alvi said
BJP has already excelled in all other forms of corruption
whether it is bribe, illegal mining or land scams. He said it
was "unfortnate" that BJP ministers were watching this in
Assembly where people expect a resolution of their problems.

Another party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said,"from
corruption to pornography they have the entire spectrum and
range available in BJP in Karnataka. This shows the hiatus
between preaching and practice by BJP".

Union Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal also took a dig at BJP
over the episode, saying the party is having "all the
entertainment".

"Nowadays it appears that some of the BJP people are
having all kinds of entertainment. Sometimes it is political
entertainment. Sometimes it is entertainment of another sort,"
he told reporters in Delhi evoking peals of laughter.

Sibal also said the BJP, which "waxes eloquent on the
issue of morality", will find the answers if they really look
at their own members of the legislative assembly.
