BJP-JD-S MLCs walk out of K’taka Legislative Council protesting remarks against PM Modi

Bengaluru, Feb 21 (IANS): BJP and JD-S members of the Karnataka Legislative Council staged a walk out on Wednesday protesting against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the floor of the House.

Kota Srinivas Poojary, Leader of Opposition in the Council objected to the remarks made by the CM while speaking on the Governor’s Speech.

Poojary demanded that he too should be given an opportunity to speak in the House and reply to the CM’s speech.

“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has spoken continuously for three hours over the Governor’s speech and is answering questions in this regard. He has also spoken about the central government. This is an election campaign speech. In his entire speech, CM Siddaramaiah has targeted PM Modi and the central government. If I am not allowed to speak, the people would get the wrong message,” Poojary stated.

The Congress members objected to Poojary’s demand and supported CM Siddaramaiah. They also raised slogans like “Our tax our right” and “BJP is against Kannada people.”

Members of the BJP in turn raised slogans against the Congress Government and staged a walkout.

CM Siddaramaiah took a jab at the BJP saying that Congressmen were the true nationalists as they fought for the freedom of the country and became martyrs and went to jail.

“Are the Jan Sangh and the BJP Parivar which never took part in the freedom struggle, nationalists?” the CM questioned.

“Those who were jailed, martyred, tortured by the British for the freedom of the country were Congressmen. There is no history of freedom struggle in the BJP. There is no history of them fighting for the country. After the country got freedom from our struggle, now they are claiming to be nationalists. But the history of India has recorded who the real nationalists are,” he said.

    While it is the fundamental right to protest it is also a deep rooted duty to introspect whether what we believe is true and that we can stand by it for longer... It is a fact that bajapa has most politicians stolen from other parties congress contributing almost 45 to 50 % of all of them... poaching public figures has a separate department in bajapa with defence like budget allocated for it... In essence it is never a party of ideology but a chorus of personal convenience.... One drop in Modiji's popularity and you will see scores fleeing the party like terrifies crows....

    JDS (Jumla Dongi Sangha) said during the protest in the year 2012-2013 in Delhi without corruption Kumaraswamy cannot run the party. Which means he has joined BJP (Brhasta Jumla Paapies) Party to hide his corrupt money and to save his JUMLA DONGI SANGH FROM SINKING, Chaiwala is doing utmost interest to catch oppositions parties to squeeze and indulged to raid from E.D., IT, CBI etc., The supreme court caught red handed BJP plans to oust Mayor from Chandighar and the S.C. caught the crocked plans of the BJP (Brhasta Jumla Paapies) Party. ALL BIASED RULING FROM NARENDRA

    There is only history of BJP members demanding 40% commission to fill their pockets, which also resulted in one contractor committing suicide. Most of them are utter fekus using gutter gas technology to speak gas.

    When opposition leaders walk out of the state assembly it’s the right opportunity for you to pass any laws and resolutions unopposed as Modi and Amit Shah do in Delhi parliament. At the same time disqualify whoever walks out of the assembly when in progress.
