Karnataka Parliament Bangalore

The cell phones of lawmakers won’t work inside the Legislative Assembly and also in the Legislative Council anymore. The officers taking chair in both houses have ordered people in charge of security to replace old jamming devices with new models which would prevent both GSM (as old ones did) and 3G cell phones from working.

 

“The present jamming devices could cease only 2G cell phones from working but not 3G models. Therefore, it was chosen to replace all jamming devices,” officials representing both houses of the Parliament said.

 

K.G. Bopaiah and D.H. Shankaramurthy, the Assembly Speaker and Council Chairman correspondingly, were obliged to take care of this matter after 3 MLAs were captured watching porn using their personal smartphones in the Assembly’s building. “It was right after Shankaramurthy and Bopaiah were pleased with efficiency of the signal jammers, permission was given and we purchased jamming devices,” was the official comment.

The selection process of those cell phone jamming devices for all buildings of Assembly secretariat is continuing now and Jammer Store is taking part in it; the Council has already accomplished it.
