Gandhingar: After the Karnataka porngate scandal, two BJP MLAs from Gujarat have now come under scanner for allegedly watching obscene pictures on a tablet during the Assembly proceedings.
The issue rocked the state assembly on Wednesday which was adjourned after Congress demands dismissal of two BJP MLAs.
Legislators Shankar Chaudhury and Jetha Bharwad were on Tuesday seen spending time on their tablets during the House proceedings here and allegations are that they were viewing obscene pictures of women.
A journalist of vernacular newspaper complained to the Speaker about the incident.
"Chaudhary showed his tab to another MLA Bharwad. First they started by watching the pictures of Swami Vivekananda, then cartoons and then pictures of women," senior journalist Janak Dave claimed.
"I went to Speaker's (Ganpat Parmar) chamber and complained about it to his PA, who informed the Speaker and the viewing was stopped," Dave said.
The BJP has, however, denied the charges. Party's state unit general secretary Vijay Rupani said the allegations are false and cooked up on the instance of Congress.
"I believe that they were not watching such material on the tablet," Rupani told reporters.
"However, if required we will inquire about the incident," he further said.
