Katta attends Assembly session

Former minister Katta Subramanya Naidu, presently out on bail from jail on medical grounds, attended the Legislative Assembly proceedings on Monday.

Wearing a monkey cap, Naidu sat in his designated seat in the Assembly and had a lengthy chat with MLAs S R Vishwanath and Roshan Baig. Several party legislators greeted Katta and shook hands with him. This is the first time Naidu attended the Assembly session after being arrested for his alleged involvement in the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board scam in August last year.

According to the Secretariat sources, Naidu stands to lose his House membership if he absents himself from three consecutive sessions of the legislature.

The former minister was last seen in the Vidhana Soudha in December 2011 when he came to vote in the council bypoll. Naidu is undergoing medical treatment for cancer at the Royal Free Hampstead Hospital in London.
