Karnataka's Congress party leader Prakash Rathod was caught red-handed browsing pornographic clips on his phone in the state legislative council on January 29.
As reported by News 18, Rathod was caught on camera going through these clips on his phone, but later when confronted denied doing the same.
He apparently was 'deleting unwanted images on his phone for clearing up space', and wasn't browsing the internet as shown.
"Usually we do not carry mobile phone inside the House, but I wanted to ask a question and hence was checking my phone. I realised that my storage was full and so I started deleting clips that were unwanted," Rathod justified, as quoted by News 18.
