MLC Congressman Raghu Achar on Friday mocked the Karnataka Legislative Council, saying it had become a temporary refuge for losers in parliamentary elections who then spend millions of rupees to participate. Following protests from other members, he then apologized for his statement.
Last Friday, the last day of the session, MLC doubles Raghu Achar said, “There was a time when the house was filled with intellect, but now it is a house filled with the rich. Apart from Kota Srinivas Poojary (BJP MLC), no one had come here without spending money, that includes me too, ”he said.
