The controversy surrounding three BJP ministers like Laxman Savdi, CC Patil and Krishna Palemar, watching porn film on mobile phone during assembly proceedings is not just an issue of the Karnataka, but it has become a serious concern of the whole country. Several Bollywood celebrities have expressed shock and dismay over the shameful act of Karnataka legislators.
Music composer-singer Vishal Dadlani took to his Twitter page and wrote, "Politicians watch porn. What a shock! Some drink and do drugs! They take bribes too. Big ones! I'm surprised that we're acting surprised! How upset we are that politicians watched porn in Parliament!"
Filmmaker Pritish Nandy tweeted, "We must be the world's most hypocritical nation. 3 idiot ministers watching porn in the Assembly is a laugh, not a political issue. Porn is an intrinsic part of all politics. Ask Silvio Berlusconi. Ask ND Tewari. Ask those who followed JFK and his Camelot years."
Another maverick filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, who has often shown controversies in his movies, has also poked fun at them by describing their act as sign of an emerging and shining India. On his Twitter page, he wrote, "Ministers watching porn in the assembly is a sure sign of an emerging and shining India...jai ho."
However, three BJP ministers in the Sadananda Gowda government, namely Laxman Savdi, CC Patil and Krishna Palemar, were caught on camera watching porn on mobile phone during assembly proceedings. They have already put down their papers today following the furore over the incident.
