Karnataka Assembly witness noisy scenes
Bangalore, Feb 12 : Karnataka Assembly plunged into noisy scenes today for a brief period during the debate on budget for 2013-14 when leader of the opposition Siddaramaiah accused that the ruling BJP was degrading the political heritage of the state.
"No former Chief Minister had been jailed on corruption charges",he said while initiating the discussions on the budget.
'The state has become a subject of ridicule to the outside world in view of the degradation,' he regretted.
The Congress leader was referring to Former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa who spent 24 days in judicial custody on corruption and illegal land de-notification charges.
A number of ruling party members took serious objection to Mr Siddaramaiah's remarks and they were retaliated equally with greater lung power by the Congress members.
On a number of occasions,Speaker K G Bopaiah expunged the exchanges between the Treasury and opposition benches.
