ZP member murder case: BJP demands resignation of Vinay Kulkarni, Assembly adjourned sine die

The final day of the winter session of the Legislative Assembly in Belagavi  on Friday  was washed out with BJP members demanding the resignation of Mines and Geology Minister Vinay Kulkarni for his alleged involvement in the murder of Yogeesh Goudar, a BJP member of Dharwad Zilla Panchayat.

 As soon as the House met, the BJP members demanded that they be allowed to raise ZP member murder case. Goudar, a member of Hebballi constituency, was hacked to death by unknown assailants on  June 15, last year.

On Thursday, the family members of Goudar at a press conference stated that they were pressured to withdraw the case. They charged that it is being done at the behest of Kulkarni.

Speaker K G Koliwad said he will allow the BJP members to raise the issue soon after the Question Hour. However, the BJP members insisted that the matter be taken up immediately keeping all other business aside.

They entered the well of the House shouting slogans against the government.

Koliwad had to adjourned the House twice. When BJP members continued with their dharna sticking on their demand, Koliwad adjourned the House sine die.
