Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s order to begin the process for the controversial ‘Constitution Club’ at Balabrooie Guesthouse has received sharp criticism.
Speaking to mediapersons on Friday September 23 AAP leader Brijesh Kalappa said, “It is normal for the government to ask any applicant who wants to start a club about the ‘Constitutional’ activities they have carried out over the last 15 years, and why legislators want an exclusive Constitutional Club.”
He asserted that the Vidhana Soudha has at least eight large halls and a lawn that can accommodate over 1,000 people and that the Legislators’ Home has five large halls, in addition to the government guesthouse Kumara Krupa, which has four to five large halls.
He inquired as to what constitutional club-appropriate actions have been carried out so far. “It is obvious that the club is meant for unconstitutional activities rather than constitutional activities,” he opined. He further asked whether or not the club was a part of ‘revdi culture,’ which Prime Minister Modi has described as involving political favours.
