Kagodu Thimmappa, speaker of the Legislative assembly said that “I believe it is due to a lot of distractions in Bengaluru. What distraction do you have in Belagavi? All through the session, the legislators do not have any other distraction than to attend the legislative assembly and council proceedings.”
MLAs & MLCs have to attend the session and then head back straight to their rooms. Attendance has been an average 99% where as in Bengaluru is as low as 35% sometimes.
