BANGALORE: After forcing the BJP on the backfoot once its legislators were allegedly caught on camera watching a lewd video during the Assembly session, and resigned later, the Congress has decided to take the matter to the “people’s court”. Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Siddaramaiah addressed the Media after the House was adjourned sine die that his party will not endorse Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah’s decision to constitute a House committee to inquire into the incident.

He informed that the events have brought ignominy to the state Assembly, and have caused irreparable damage to its reputation.

“The Speaker, by not suspending the members, has colluded with them. He has failed to uphold the dignity of the Assembly.”
