Minister KS Poojary flays Congress for chaos in Legislative Council

Govt will implement Cow Slaughter Prevention Bill, through an ordinance, says Poojary

Prime News, Karnataka, Mangaluru, December 18:- Fisheries Minister Kota Srinivas Poojary on Thursday (December 17) criticised the Congress for creating chaos in the state Legislative Council.

Addressing reporters at Udupi, he accused the Congress leadership of politicising an issue and not following democratic decorum in the council. Leaders of the Congress were responsible for the trouble in the council on Tuesday (December 15) before a no-confidence motion was moved against the chairman K Pratapchandra Shetty, he said.

He said in the past when the Congress had moved a no-trust motion against the then chairman D H Shankaramurthy of the Bharatiya Janata Party, he had left the chair and asked the deputy chairman to conduct the proceedings.

Poojary said the Congress has restrained Shetty from facing the debate on the no-confidence motion. The BJP has now requested the Governor Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala seeking permission for a vote on the no-trust motion, he said.

On the Cow Slaughter Prevention Bill, he said the Lower House has passed it and the government would implement it through an ordinance.

Pandemonium had broken out at the council on Tuesday as Deputy Chairman S L Dharme Gowda had literally been pulled down from the Chairman’s seat and the House adjourned sine die without having taken up any business. (Inputs: Agencies, NGB)
