Karnataka ministers caught watching obscene clips quit cabinet

Bangalore , Wed, 08 Feb 2012 ANI

Bangalore, Feb 8 (ANI): Following the directive issued by the central leadership of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), three Karnataka BJP ministers today resigned from the state cabinet after they were engulfed in a row over watching sleazy clippings during the Assembly proceedings.


A day after the incident caused huge embarrassment to the BJP government, all the three ministers were summoned to the party office and were asked to submit their resignation after a meeting of the senior leaders presided over by Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda.


Minister for Cooperation Laxman Savadi, Minister for Women and Child Development C C Patil and Minister for Ports and Science and Technology Krishna Palemar announced after a meeting with top leaders that they have decided to quit.


According to Raj Bhavan sources, Karnataka Governor H R Bhardwaj has accepted the resignation of three tainted ministers, which were forwarded by Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda earlier on Wednesday.


Karnataka Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda told the mediapersons that the ministers had voluntarily submitted their resignations.


Former Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who also spoke on the issue, said the ministers' decision to resign highlighted their dedication to the BJP.


"Today the important thing is that our three ministers, they have given their resignations and no other political party can take such type of decision because they have voluntarily given their resignations because this is the specialty of Bharatiya Janata Party and even our national leaders they have now demanded a resignation letter," said Yeddyurappa.


Savadi and Patil were caught on Tuesday while they were allegedly viewing the porno video footage inside the state assembly, an incident that battered the image of the Sadananda Gowda Government and BJP.


The incident created controversy, across the country as local television channels showed Savadi watching the video clips on his phone.


The controversy led to an uproar, with political parties in the state demanding the sacking of the minister due to his inappropriate conduct. (ANI)
