Amidst political drama in Karnataka, old video of Assembly speaker where he says he ‘felt like rape victim’ goes viral

On February 13, 2019, Karnataka assembly speaker Ramesh Kumar had created a controversy after he insensitively used an analogy to compare himself to a rape victim.

An old video of Karnataka Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar has become viral during the ongoing political drama in Karnataka legislative assembly.

On February 13, 2019, Karnataka assembly speaker Ramesh Kumar had created a controversy after he insensitively used an analogy to compare himself to a rape victim. He had compared himself to a rape survivor having to undergo repeated questioning as he referred to repeated charges against him being part of the controversial audio tapes, over which government had constituted an SIT.

In February, a controversy had erupted after a Special Investigation Team probe into an audio clip showing state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa in a purported conversation to lure a JD(S) MLA in his alleged attempt to topple the Congress-JDS government. Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar was also dragged into the controversy.

The Speaker, pointing to repeated reference to charges against him, said his “situation was like that of a rape victim, as they too are supposedly questioned about the incident repeatedly.”
