BANGALORE: Three former ministers - Laxman V Savadi, CC Patil and J Krishna Palemar - will depose before the porngate panel on Thursday. While Savadi and Patil have been accused of watching porn clips in the legislative assembly on February 7, stored in mobile phone, Palemar is charged with supplying the hand set.

The panel headed by Srishailappa Bidadur has already held three meetings in which two Kannada news channels were grilled for airing footage. "The panel has summoned the three former ministers to appear before the panel on March 8," committee member SR Vishwanath said. Following criticism, Speaker KG Bopaiah constituted seven member committee involving MLAs from ruling-BJP, Congress and the JD(S) to probe the incident. However, opposition parties Congress and JD(S) boycotted it. The probe panel consists of only BJP members.

The four-member committee reviewed the replies from the three members, Savadi, and Palemar, who quit as ministers in the wake of the scandal. Sources in the committee said that Palemar and Patil have submitted three-page reply, Savadi has give five-page reply. "While Patil and Palemar have said that they didn’t view the porn clip, Savadi has said it was not his deliberate intention to watch it. Palemar has claimed that the mobile phone which has these clippings does not belong to him. Patil has also said that he asked Patil to turn of the mobile while watching Taliban/Iraq human torture clip," sources said.

Recently Nehru Olekar, a member in the committee made news stating that CCTV footage of the legislative assembly showed more MLAs watching clips stored in the mobile phone. 

Bidadur has hinted that he may seek extension of panel by a week to March 19-20. Speaker Bopaiah has set deadline of March 13 to submit the report. "The committee will submit its report before the start of budget session," Bidadur said.
