BANGALORE: Expressing anguish over the incident in which three BJP ministers were caught watching an obscene film inside the Assembly, JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda stated matter-of-fact that such incidents were rampant during his predecessor, B S Yeddyurappa’s regime.
Addressing the Media here on Thursday, he said that the membership of those invloved in the incident ought to be expelled from the Legislature.
Recalling the ignominious cash-for-questions scandal in Parliament in 2005 when then Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee sacked those involved in it, Gowda asserted that Tuesday’s incident was far more “culpable”.
He also advocated the need for political parties to unite and arrive at a consensus on forfeiting the membership of the three BJP MLAs.
Meanwhile, the JD (S) will launch Janapara Janatha Jatha, a month-long a statewide tour programme from Friday. Gowda said the tour will be completed in three phases and would cover 30 districts across the state.
