Cong demands Karnataka CM's resignation over porn clip issue

Demanding the resignation of Karnataka Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on ''moral grounds'' over the porn scandal, Congress today said the BJP has ''no face left'' in the state following the episode.

"BJP which talks of high morals and ethics has no face left. What will its president Nitin Gadkari say now on this episode?" All India Congress Committee Secretary Sudhakar Reddy told PTI.

Three BJP ministers in the Sadananda Gowda government --Laxman Savdi, C C Patil and Krishna Palemar -- were caught on camera watching a porn video on their mobile phone during Assembly proceedings.

The three ministers resigned yesterday following furore over the incident.

"The matter does not end with the resignation of the ministers. The Chief Minister should also resign on moral grounds," Reddy said.

"The porn clip episode reveals the real face of BJP, which claims itself as a party with culture. It is indicating what kind of culture they are boasting of," Reddy said.

The BJP-led Karnataka government has shown several examples of how corrupt the party is, he said

"Look at the recent incidents involving its ministers in corruption. The party has been left with a black face," he added.
