Bengaluru: Legislative Council chairman Basavaraj Horatti leaves JD(S)


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Feb 23: Veteran politician and chairman of Karnataka state legislative council, Basavaraj Horatti, has resigned from the primary membership of the JD(S). Horatti was considered a strong loyalist of Deve Gowda and the JD(S), and has been winning council elections continuously since long.

As per an understanding reached between the BJP and the JD(S), Basavaraj Horatti had been elected unopposed as the chairman of the legislative council here on February 9, leaving the deputy chairman's position to the BJP.

Horatti, who has sent his resignation letter to the national president of the JD(S), H D Deve Gowda, stated that in the light of his assuming charge as the chairman of the council, he had to resign from the primary membership of the party to which he was affiliated, as he is expected to function independently and without bias towards any party and individual.

    exactly. As it happened in the case of Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee who was asked by his party to resign before the trust vote during UPA-I. Hence, speaker can not function as unbiased and non-partisan manner

    No! It's a tradition followed by many of the elected speaker and chairman of the house, to symbolise their commitment towards the constitutional post. He will still show his obedience to JDS
