K’taka Legislative Council ruckus: Siddaramaiah confident that Guv will take impartial decision


PTI, Dec 16, 2020, 12:53 PM IST

Bengaluru: Accusing the BJP and JD(S) of indulging in goondagiri, Congress legislature party leader Siddaramaiah expressed confidence that the Governor will take an impartial decision on the events that unfolded in the Legislative council on Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, Siddaramaiah said that the secret alliance between BJP and JD(S) now stands exposed and the leaders of both parties must apologize to the people of Karnataka.

Terming the incident as a blot on state’s image and the country’s Parliamentary democracy, Siddaramaiah tweeted, “BJP4Karnataka MLCs have disregarded Constitution by locking up Chairman of Legislative Council and replacing him with Deputy Chairman without the approval of the former.
This is the death of democracy.”

“Deputy Chairman can chair the session only if Chairman is unable to attend the session for any reason. It can’t be the prerogative of
@BJP4Karnataka leaders. Has the procedure been followed in allowing Deputy Chairman to sit?,” he said in yet another tweet.

The Karnataka Legislative Council witnessed high drama on Tuesday with BJP-JD(S) and Congress members hurling abuses and pushing each other and the Deputy Chairman being pulled down from the Chairman’s seat, over a row pertaining to the no-confidence motion.

Amid the pandemonium and chaos which many senior members termed as a “black mark” and “unprecedented” in the Council’s over a century old history, it was adjourned sine die within minutes after it met for the day.

The ball now seems to be in the Governor Vajubhai Vala’s court with both BJP and JD(S) jointly petitioning him and seeking his intervention to enable taking up of the no- confidence motion.
