Bangalore, Feb 7 Karnataka Cooperation Minister Laxman Savadi was Tuesday caught watching blue film clippings on his cell phone in the state assembly, plunging the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party into unprecedented crisis in the state.
Kannada TV channels showed Savadi with Women and Child Welfare Minister C.C. Patil next to him watching the sex act on his cell when the assembly was discussing a pro-Hindu group allegedly hoisting a Pakistani flag in north Karnataka recently.
Savadi, Patil and Chief Minister D. V. Sadananda Gowda were not immediately available for comment.
Opposition Congress and Janata Dal-Secular blasted the ministers and the BJP, and sought the immediate dismissal of the two ministers. They should be expelled from the assembly, they said.
"This is the most shameful incident in the history of Karnataka assembly. Savadi should be sacked as minister and expelled from the assembly," Leader of Opposition Siddaramaiah of the Congress told reporters.
State JD-S chief and former chief minister H.D. Kumaraswamy too sought immediate dismissal of Savadi and said his party will decide Wednesday action to be taken in the assembly and outside over the "shocking incident".
