Watching porn not treason: Madhuswamy


Team Udayavani, Sep 6, 2019, 11:46 AM IST

Tumakuru: Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs JC Madhuswamy defending Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi over the 2012 controversy in which he was forced to resign as a minister for watching porn on his mobile phone in the Assembly said that watching the video in Vidhana Soudha is not an accusation of treason.

Addressing presspersons here he said, “Watching pornographic video in Vidhana Soudha is not treason. I know it should not have happened but he watched it accidentally and there is no need to exaggerate it so much.”

“Accidentally watching a video is not a big issue,” he added.

Laxman Savadi, who made news after he was caught watching a pornographic video during an Assembly session in 2012, was appointed as a Deputy Chief Minister despite losing the Assembly elections in 2018. He was also given the portfolio of Transport Minister.
