New Speaker of Karnataka Kageri says Constitution is like Bhagavad Gita
BJP leader and six-time MLA Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri got elected as Speaker of Karnataka Legislative Assembly. The Opposition Congress JDS did not file a candidate against Mr. Kageri.
Mr Kageri said 'Constitution is like Bhagavad Gita. It is because of the Constitution that a person like me has been able to occupy the Speaker’s chair and a person like Narendra Modi, who hails from a humble background, has become the PM.' Also, he added, “both are conducive to each other.”
Kageri said “Political conditions may not be conducive for these things. But let there not be any decline in our commitment to these issues and efforts to become the voice of the voiceless,” he said.
Kageri has urged the bureaucracy to be more responsive to the people issue’s, and any indifference or irresponsibility by bureaucracy would fail the intentions of democracy. Meanwhile, JD(S) leader HDK appealed Speaker has must hold the Assembly session at least for 60 days in a year, he said.
