Karnataka legislator shares porn images on WhatsApp group!

Bengaluru: Though sharing obscene content on social media platforms including Whatsapp is a criminal offence; that has not deterred even lawmakers to refrain from ‘forwarding’  them to their groups! Else, this BJP legislator in Karnataka would not have forwarded 50 porn images to his group, which also has more lawmakers, government officials and senior councillors as members, many being women.

Whether it was a  ‘doing’ or an ‘embarrassing slip’ of Mahantesh Kavatagimath, a member of the state Legislative Council,  on Tuesday, images of nude women were allegedly forwarded from his phone number to one of the groups called “Belagavi media force” that was established to share news.  The group has police officers, MPs, women officers, social activists and even people from the media.

Though the legislator was removed immediately by one of the members, his phone has been switched off. However, many members quit the group.

Earlier, instances of elected representatives watching porn videos on Assembly floors had created a lot of ruckus.
