Porngate: Bopaiah yet to receive Katju's letter

Legislative Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah has said that he was yet to receive the letter written by Press Council of India Chairperson Markandey Katju urging the withdrawal of probe against mediapersons who reported on the porngate scandal.

When contacted by Deccan Herald, Bopaiah on Tuesday said even his office had not received the letter. Asked whether he would consider the suggestion of Katju, the Speaker said, “I can react only after going through the letter.”

Katju has also suggested the Speaker to take stringent action against MLAs who were watching porn clippings in the Assembly, instead of taking action against media who reported it.

The Legislature House Committee, headed by BJP MLA Srishailappa Bidarur, constituted to inquire into the incident is likely to submit its report only after March 18.
