Way back in 2012, Then Karnataka Cooperation Minister Laxman Savadi, Environment & Ports Minister J Krishna Palemar and Women & Child Welfare Minister CC Patil were caught watching porn in the Assembly. There was a nationwide outrage over this disgraceful incident which took place in the temple of democracy. Following the backlash, The Ministers tendered their resignations upon receiving orders from the party leadership.
Six years later, BJP offered MLA Tickets to two of those three Former Ministers who were caught watching porn in the Assembly. While Laxman Savadi is the candidate for Athani Constituency, CC Patil is contesting from Nargund Constituency.
This shows, BJP is only focusing on how to win elections rather than the conduct or track record of the candidates. What kind of message Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to send to the people by encouraging leaders who brought disgrace to the Assembly?
