Porngate: Karnataka to have President's rule?

Bangalore, Feb 10: With the sleazy video row, Opposition parties on Friday demanded President's rule in Karnataka to avoid such shameful act.

Siddaramaiah, Opposition Leader in the Assembly told media people, "We have met Governor H R Bhardwaj and requested him to recommend to the Central government to dissolve the Assembly and dismiss the state government under Article 356 for failing to govern as per Constitutional laws."

He further said that the government has failed to act well in all sectors including implementation of various public schemes and maintaining decorum of the House.

"We need not learn lessons of morality from Congress leaders. The whole world knows about the scams the Congress leaders faced. I myself can cite at least 25 such instances that involved Congress leaders," Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda told the media.

A six-member committee has been formed to investigate on the matter and they will submit a report by March 12.

As soon as the proceedings began in Karnataka assembly, there was a ruckus in the assembly as the leaders and MLAs of the Opposition parties shouted 'Shame! Shame!'.

A meeting was held by Karnataka Chief Minister DV Sadananada Gowda and Karnataka Law Minister Suresh Kumar with the Speaker, KG Bopaiah to discuss on the issue.

During the assembly session on Tuesday, the three ministers were caught in camera watching sleazy movie in mobile phones following which they resigned on Wednesday, Feb 8.

Meanwhile, the Opposition also demanded dismissal of the tainted minsters. However, Chief Minister Sadananda Gowda defended them citing that the government won't take any action against them without having proper probe.

"It is for the Speaker to take action against ministers if they were found guilty of watching porno clippings in the assembly," said Gowda.
