Karnataka Legislative Council Chairman Shankaramurthy retired

Bengaluru, Jun 21 (UNI) Senior politician and Karnataka Legislative Council Chairman D H Shankaramurthy today retired after six year term and thanked all party legislators in the elder’s house and officials in the secretariat for cooperating with him during the tenure.
Mr Shankaramurthy, who strived to streamline the conduct of the Legislative Council and its members also tried to bring in technology to digitize the entire proceedings of the upper house that had come into appreciation from all quarters.
Though he belonged to BJP originally, he conducted the elders’ house in utmost impartial manner which was appreciated by Congress and Janata Dal (S) members had not raised any issues against the Chairman.
Mr Shankaramurty was elected to the Legislative Council for four times -- during 1994, 2000, 2006 and 2012, and was also the Higher Education minister during JD(S)-BJP coalition government after 2006.
The senior politician came out unscathed after he faced a no confidence motion moved by the then ruling Congress in 2017, after JD(S) supported the BJP to defeat the motion.
Incidentally Congress joined hands with JD(S) to form the coalition government to keep out BJP after May 12 Assembly elections.
Speaking to reporters on his last day in office Mr Shankaramurthy said there had been big occasion for him being head of the Legislative Council and some unsavory incidents, but he took all those in his strides.
‘’I am proud that I strived the install of the monolith Mahatma Gandhi Statue in Vidhana Soudha and conducted myself and the most prestigious Legislative Council of Karnataka which has a great history to the best of my abilities. My retirement from the post today does not mean that I will retire from politics. I will be active to provide my best advice to politicians, young and seasoned, from all parties,’’ Mr Shankaramurthy told reporters at a function at his chambers on Thursday.
