Karnataka, September 6: State Law Minister JC Madhuswamy has said that watching porn in Vidhan Soudha is not anti-national. The Minister said this on Thursday while defending Deputy chief minister Laxman Savadi who was forced to resign in 2012 for watching porn on his mobile phone at the Assembly. Karnataka Cabinet Portfolios Announced: Govind Makthappa, Ashwath Narayan, Laxman Savadi Named as Deputy CMs by BS Yediyurappa.

Commenting on Savadi's appointment as the Deputy CM, Madhuswamy said, "It was a mistake, there is no point arguing that he should not have been a Minister now. He has not committed any anti-national activity or indulged in any pecuniary activity that calls for punishment. There is no point criticising him for the same."

The one-month-old B S Yediyurappa government has come under attack from senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah for making Laxman Savadi as Deputy Chief Minister. Siddaramaiah also slammed Yediyurappa for giving Savadi the post when he had lost the Assembly elections last year. "The person who had lost the election has been made the deputy chief minister. BJP does not have shame. Do They Have Any?" A section of the BJP had also criticised the move of making Savadi a Minister as he was neither a member of Assembly nor Council.
