The one-day special session of the Karnataka Legislative Council was in full swing on Tuesday. The MLC of the ruling party and the opposition, especially the Congress, was pushed hard and clashes broke out. At the same time, members of Congress forced the Deputy Speaker to sit on the Speaker’s chair. They were pushed and dragged. He was accompanied by Congress leader and House Speaker K.S. Pratapchandra sat down on his chair before sitting on the stick. In the wake of the uproar, President Shetty adjourned the Legislative Council indefinitely.

The Congress bid, if it was raised illegally, was raised
On this, the Congress says that the Deputy Speaker was sitting illegally in the President’s chair, so we picked him up. Congress MLC Prakash Rathore said, “BJP and JDS illegally appointed Deputy Speakers when the House was not functioning.” It is unfortunate that the BJP is making such a constitutional phenomenon. Congress asked him to step down from the chair, we had to evict him because he was sitting on it illegally.

BJP behaved like goons
BJP MLC Leharsingh Siroya said, “Some MLCs forcibly removed the Speaker of the Legislative Council, treated him like a goon and insulted him. We have never seen such an embarrassing day in the history of our conference. I am ashamed of what the public thinks of you. ‘
