According to reporter Janak Purohit, who claimed to have seen the MLAs watching pornographic content inside the House on a tablet, he complained to the Speaker about the matter.

Speaker Ganpat Vasava asked the two MLAs to stop watching such contents inside the Assembly. He later ordered an inquiry by the Privileges Committee into the incident. The MLA submitted his laptop to the Forensic laboratory for examination.

The Speaker said that a thorough inquiry would be conducted. However, he did not specify any
deadline for the submission of the report. The two MLAs, meanwhile, have denied the allegation.

But, the reporter, said: “We were sitting in the reporters’ gallery in the House and could see two MLAs—Shanker Chaudhary and Jetha Bharwad—surfing porn photographs. Then, I brought the matter to the attention of the Speaker through a chit. Then, he called the MLAs and asked them to switch off the iPad.”

According to Purohit, the MLAs were watching the photographs when the Assembly was discussing budgetary demands of the revenue dept.

Meanwhile, BJP general secretary Vijay Rupani denied that the MLAs were watching porn clips.  “It’s a Congress conspiracy to defame BJP members. We are confident that our MLAs would not have done any such thing inside the house,” Rupani said. “The party leadership will inquire into the allegation and also seek an explanation from the members.”

State Congress president Arjun Modhwadia said: “The BJP’s real face has come out in the open earlier in Karnataka and now here in Gujarat.” While the House was adjourned for a day and the
Congress members were suspended for creating ruckus, Modhwadia said the party would not remain a mute spectator to such action and indiscipline in the House.

In February this year, some Karnataka BJP legislators were caught watching pornography by a cameraman of a television channel inside the Assembly.
