Unparliamentary Conduct

Three state ministers, including a women’s affairs minister, were forced to resign after being caught watching pornography on a mobile phone during a session of Karnataka’s legislative house.

Television news footage caught Karnataka Minister for Cooperation Laxman Savadi huddling with his colleague C.C. Patil, the minister for women and child development, in the state assembly watching the pornographic clip on a phone owned by state Minister for Ports, Science and Technology Krishna Palemar, who also resigned.

Savadi claimed the video was a “documentary” and he was only watching it in a distracted manner: “I was reading an order on onion prices handed over to me, and watching the video in between. I came to know about the controversy created by my action only after I returned to my quarters at night.”

No question, he was distracted.
