Watching porn not treason: Karnataka law minister defends Deputy CM Laxman Savadi

Karnataka Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs JC Madhuswamy, on Thursday, September 5, said, “Watching video in Vidhana Soudha is not an accusation of treason” while defending Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi over the 2012 controversy in which the latter was forced to resign as a minister for watching porn on his mobile phone in the Assembly.

“It should morally not be done but it is not treason. Accidentally watching a video is not a big issue. Everyone speaks something wrong. It cannot be pulled up repeatedly,” Madhuswamy said while speaking to media.

“He has not cheated anyone or committed any treason that calls for punishment. There is no point criticising him for the same,” he said.

“We all make mistakes and there is no point amplifying them and continuing to criticise him. He has not cheated anyone or committed any anti-national activity or indulged in pecuniary activity that calls for punishment. I’m not saying watching the video was correct; what I’m saying is there is no point criticising him for the same.”

Laxman Savadi, who was caught watching a pornographic content during an Assembly session in 2012, was appointed as a Deputy Chief Minister. He was entrusted with the Transport Minister portfolio.
