BANGALORE: Speaking on the sidelines of an event here on Sunday, Opposition leader in the State Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah alleged that the no-confidence motions moved by the Congress twice against Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah, were not taken up for discussion at all.

“The government is holding the session for just 10 days.

It will take 14 days to take up a no-confidence motion for discussion.

It is clear that the government is not providing any opportunity for the Opposition for discussion on the motion against the Speaker on whom the Supreme Court has passed strictures,” Siddaramaiah rued.

He warned that his party would place the motion again in the session on Monday.

The Speaker should have tendered resignation following the Supreme Court’s verdict on the MLAs’ disqualification case, said Siddaramaiah.

If Bopaiah has any moral rights, he should resign immediately, he added.

The Congress leader urged the government to ask Bopaiah to step down.

He termed the Chief Minister’s statement that the Speaker need not resign as a ‘shameful reply.’
