Bangalore, Jan 12 (Agencies): The Congress and JD-S on Wednesday boycotted proceedings of the Karnataka Assembly protesting the "attitude" of the ruling BJP which transacted official and legislative business ignoring opposition dharna.

Amid slogan shouting and dharna for the third consecutive day, seven bills including, the Karnataka Appropriation Bill, 2011, were adopted. The appropriation bill authorizes the state government to withdraw Rs 5060.41 crore.

The opposition has been demanding acceptance of its adjournment notice to discuss alleged land scams and corruption.

As Speaker K G Bopaiah took up Question Hour, laying of papers on the table and bills, rejecting the opposition's appeal for not transacting business, Congress and JD-S said they would boycott proceedings. They then walked out, shouting slogans against the Government.

"It is nothing but murder of democracy. The Speaker has also joined hands with the Government," opposition Congress leader Siddaramaiah said before leading the walkout by his party and JD-S members.

The House then took up the motion to thank the Governor for his address to the joint sitting on January 6.

The Speaker then adjourned the House for the day. Suresh Gowda (BJP) sought to move a breach of privilege notice against JD-S leader and MP H D Kumaraswamy for making certain remarks denigrating the Assembly.

Gowda said the former Chief Minister's remarks lowered the image of the House and its members.

Bopaiah said he would write to the Lok Sabha Speaker on the issue.

Siddaramaiah later told reporters that the Yeddyurappa government should quit in the wake of allegations of corruption and land scams.

"The scams that occurred during the BJP government in the last two and a half years were to the extent of Rs one lakh crore," he claimed, adding Yeddyurappa has no moral right to continue in office.

Siddaramaiah and JD(S) leader H D Revanna criticised the Speaker for "supporting" the government and not inviting the opposition for consultations after the stand-off broke out between them and the ruling party.
