The Legislative Assembly witnessed uproarious scenes with the BJP insisting that the party be allowed to make a preliminary submission to move an adjournment motion seeking the resignation of Bengaluru Development Minister K J George.

Soon after question hour, Leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar said the party sought to move an adjournment motion seeking the resignation of George following the CBI filing an FIR against the minister in the DySP M K Ganapathi case.

Shettar said George had no right to continue in office till the CBI completes its investigation. The minister's continuation in office could lead to hampering evidence, he said.

The house witnessed the heated exchange of words between treasury and opposition members when Law Minister T B Jayachandra said that the BJP notice was faulty and should be rejected as the matter was sub-judice.

In his ruling, Speaker K B Koliwad rejected the notice of the BJP stating that the issue had already been discussed the issue during the previous session.

BJP members trooped into the well of the House and staged a dharna even as Koliwad adjourned the House for launch
