BANGALORE: The advocate in Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda came to light at the Legislative Council on Wednesday, when he argued that the ruling party had every right to be on high moral grounds following the voluntarily resignation of the three ministers, who allegedly watched pornographic films inside the House. While the chief minister’s logic made the Opposition relent and listen to him patiently, BJP members were seen nodding at each other with a sense of satisfaction over Gowda’s forceful defence of the establishment, and a veiled attack at the Opposition. “After returning to the city at 12.30 am, I contacted the ministers and the senior leaders of the party. Even as we were amidst the discussion, the ministers resigned at 8 am. I recommended to the Governor at 8.30 am and the announcement (of having accepted the resignation) came from Raj Bhavan at 9 am. Has such quick action been taken anywhere?” he asked.

   Opposition members kept quiet when Gowda said that he could show 32 instances of sex-related scams involving leaders of various political parties across the country. “I do not want to do so as I do not want to wash dirty linen in public,” he said.
