Karnataka: Congress MLC caught scrolling adult content | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: Congress MLC Prakash Rathod was caught on camera browsing through videos and pictures on his mobile phone during the legislative council session on Friday, an embarrassing ethical breach inside the House. In the footage shot by television channels, some of the content was adult, though he denied watching anything objectionable.
The footage has gone viral. A senior council official said Rathod had breached the no-phone rule and added that the council chairman may penalise him. Rathod, also spokesperson of Karnataka Congress, said he was deleting messages to free up space on his mobile when some TV channels recorded it and claimed he was watching objectionable content. Nine years ago, three BJP ministers were caught watching a porn clip in the assembly.

After the row, legislators and mediapersons have been barred from using phone in assembly and council. Members cannot carry phones into the assembly and must put them away in lockers. The 2012 row had forced two of the three BJP ministers to quit. They claimed they were watching footage prepared for a discussion on ill-effects of a rave party. Two of the three are ministers in the BS Yediyurappa government.
