New Delhi: The shocking incident inside the Karnataka Assembly, where the three BJP ministers were caught watching sleazy clippings during the assembly proceedings, has not only given the fodder for the Opposition parties but has also become a rage on the social media.
Soon after the news flashed on the channels, criticism poured in for the ministers from all quarters. While the episode went viral on the news sites, social media ended up trending the incident on top. The internet was lit up with news of the Karnataka ministers porn controversy and tags like ‘Porngate’ and ‘Karnataka Assembly’ trending at the top.
Savadi and Patil were caught on Tuesday while they were allegedly viewing the porno video footage inside the state assembly, an incident that battered the image of the Sadananda Gowda Government and BJP, evoking widespread condemnation across the state.
The public took to twitter and started slapping jokes on the whole episode. A lot of creative brains together who one after the other tried to create the best joke.
Taking a swipe at the porngate, Suryanarayan Ganesh tweeted: "Nitin Gadkari's speeches attacked Mayawati for erecting statues. BJP in Karnataka assembly had erections when creating statutes."
Arulkumar took to twitter to express his angst. "Apple is famous for iPhone......BJP becomes famous for iPorn:)," he tweeted.
The micro blogging site was flooded with comments over media's response on the issue. "Love the Media's role in exposing K'taka's. Hope this wakes up the Ministers to take their roles seriously."
VerseCannon tweeted: "Why is paidmedia interested in porngate? Where was the outrage over Rajbala's death?"
"Media showed no sympathy towards Bhawnri Devi and Rajbala. But can't stay away from outrage over porngate." were some of the tweets for and against media.
The twitteratis entered into war of words criticising BJP and Congress.
Referring to the Bhanwari Devi episode, Priti Gandhi tweeted, "BJP MLA's watched, few weeks back Congress MLA Mederna Actually did it and then even KILLED the woman!! Where are our priorities?"
A tweet by Kiran Kumar S said: "Instead of dumping ND Tiwari, who slept on porngate camera with 3 young girls at Governor's mansion, Congress celebrated Holi at his home!"
Not just professionals, but politicians including several top ministers also tweeted on the Karnataka Assembly episode. "Now days BJP has other forms of entertainment, sometimes its political sometimes its entertainment of this sort," Kapil Sibal tweeted.
