BANGALORE: The House Committee of the state Assembly — which inquired into allegations of three former BJP ministers watching porn clippings on a mobile phone — has given a clean chit to two of them and revoked the ban on their participation in the Assembly proceedings.

However, the report has recommended for admonition of Lakshman Savadi for having used a mobile inside the House.

In its 28-page report submitted by committee chairman Srishailappa Bidarur to the House at the fag end of the proceedings on Friday, the committee stated that it found no “clear, incriminating evidence” to prove that the three former ministers were watching porn clips in the Assembly.

The committee also recommended that the existing rules of procedure of the Assembly be amended suitably in order to ban the use of cell phones and other electronic equipment inside the House.

“The present rules were framed when mobile phones  and laptops were not in use. In the changed circumstances, the rules need to be amended,” the committee opined.
