Bengaluru: Reacting to the statement given by Gokak MLA Ramesh Jarakiholi that he has sent his resignation through fax, Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar said, “I am a Speaker and not a postman”.

Addressing presspersons after verifying the resignation papers of Vijayanagar MLA Anand Singh at his office in Vidhana Soudha here on Tuesday, July 2 Ramesh said, “I am not working in postal department to receive resignation sent through fax. Ego or status will not work here. Only norms will work.”

He further added, “While speaking to media the MLAs should mind their language. I am the Speaker of this House. This position is above all and sacred. I am a small person to sit on this chair. When I am here, no one should insult that position and it’s my concern.”

Expressing anger he said, ” Whatever decisions we have to take, we should take them under the law. Except for Anand Singh, no MLA has given me resignation papers. I would complete this process as I did when Umesh Jadav resigned from his position.”
