Assembly ruckus: panel report by month-end

Special Correspondent


70 per cent of the inquiry completed, says panel chairman Appachu Ranjan

Committee was formed to recommend action against 15 Opposition MLAs


BANGALORE: The Legislative Assembly committee, set up by Speaker K.G. Bopaiah to look into the unruly scenes in the House during the trust vote on October 11, will submit its report by this month-end.

Talking to presspersons here on Thursday, committee chairman and Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Appachu Ranjan said about 70 per cent of the inquiry had been completed. The committee had been formed to recommend suitable action against 15 Opposition MLAs (Congress – 8 and JD(S) – 7) for the ruckus in the Assembly.

Pointing out that the committee had issued notices to these MLAs asking them to appear before it, he said only the Congress members had replied to the notices. Pandemonium prevailed in the Assembly when Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa moved a trust motion, with MLAs hurling abuses, standing on desks and getting into a scuffle with marshals.

The police had also been called into the House.

The Speaker constituted the committee while acting on a petition filed by the BJP, which alleged that the Congress and JD(S) MLAs lowered the dignity of the House by creating unruly scenes and using unparliamentary language against the Speaker during the trust vote. The Opposition MLAs not only brought the disqualified five Independent legislators to the House but also assaulted the marshals, the petition alleged.

The MLAs named in the petition are N.A. Haris, B.K. Sangameshwar, Suresh Gowda, U.T. Khader, P.M. Ashok, Rahim Khan, H.P. Manjunath, Kakaso Panduranga Patil (Congress), C. S. Puttaraju, B. Z. Zameer Ahmed, Bandeppa Kashempur, M.T. Krishnappa, H.C. Balakrishna, K.P. Bache Gowda and K. Raju (JD-S).
