Just in: Congress to move Supreme Court over the appointment of BJP MLA KG Bopaiah as pro tem Speaker. Abhishek Singhvi of the Congress said earlier that Bopaiah's appointment as pro tem speaker is against the rule book. "Ideally the senior most leader is supposed to hold that position," Singhvi who led the charge for the Congress-JD-S in the Supreme Court against the governor's decision to invite the BJP to form government.
However, the BJP has stated, that, KG Bopaiah was appointed as pro tem speaker even in 2008
by the then Governor. "That time Bopaiah was 10 years younger than what
he is today. Congress is thus raising hoax objection. The appointment of
Bopaiahji is as per rules and regulations," Prakash Javadekar has said.
