Organisations take to streets against 'dirty picture'

Demand disqualification of tainted MLAs; ban on porn films

Various associations in the city on Wednesday took to streets condemning the three BJP ministers for watching porn on cellphone during assembly session.

Girl students from different colleges led by All India Mahila Samskrithika Sanghatane (AIMSS) leader Sandhya staged a demonstration near K R Circle.

They demanded for the sacking of cooperation minister Lakshman M Savadi, women and child development minister C C Patil and inland water and ports minister Krishna J Palemar.

 Though the three ministers have tendered resignation following the incident, it would be appropriate if their legislatorship is revoked, the activists demanded.

At Gandhi Square, not one but four organisations staged stir against the issue that has rocked the State for the elected representatives caught red-handed.

About 15 activists of communist party of India (marxists) led by their district secretary Basavaraju, 10 Kannada activists of Karunda Sene led by their president Ravishankar, 20 Congress workers of Yelwal block jointly led by former zilla panchayat president K Marigowda and Manjunath, and few others under the banner of Karnataka Rajya Hindulida Vargagala Jagrutha Vedike led by their president K S Shivaram vociferously demanded further action against the ministers for their shameful act.

Activists of Mysore Kannada Vedike too staged a stir in front of the office of deputy commissioner  by stamping on effigy of the ministers, venting their ire against the latter.
While Janata Dal (Secular) workers staged a sit-in in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s bust in front of Law Courts complex.

Communist party of India (CPI) district secretary H R Sheshadri in  a press release has said that the incident has brought disrepute to the legislature.

The civic society has to hang its head in shame. The very shameful act also mirrors the nature of saffron party.

It also calls for the women legislators to beware of their fellow male members especially of BJP.  A criminal case has to be filed against the trio.

District women’s Congress general secretary Mangalagowri (Mala) has exhorted the authorities to prohibit the tainted legislators from taking part in the proceedings in the assembly henceforth.

Action should also be taken against producing blue films, a release said.
Social democratic party of India (SDPI) staged a protest in front of Milad Bagh on Ashoka road. 

The workers led by their district vice-president Kiran Kumar J alleged that the very incident has unmasked the true colours of saffron party.
