Bengaluru, March 4 : Karnataka assembly speaker, Vishweshwara Hegde Kaageri on Thursday suspended Congress MLA B. K. Sangamesh for one week for displaying ‘indecent and disrespectful’ behaviour in the Assembly by taking off his shirt.
Sangamesh, who won the Assembly seat from Bhadravati constituency in Shivamogga district, will not be allowed to enter the Legislature till March 12.
This incident took place when the Congress party was in front of the speaker to Oppose the ruling party’s decision to take-up debate on – one nation one election – for two days starting from Thursday.
However, Sangamesh had his own reasons to oppose in this manner alleging that ruling party BJP leaders were harassing his family members and him by filing false complaints against them.
Sangamesh protesting by removing his shirt was similar to a 2010 protest in which Goolihatti Shekhar a minister in Yediyurappa’s cabinet ripped off his shirt in the Assembly and was disqualified.
Furious over the Sangamesh’s way to protest, the speaker Kaageri adjourned the house soon after and suspended the MLA from Bhadravati, for a week.
