The Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) who had earlier participated in the Akshaya Patra debate in the assembly on the 13th of April, 2007 (add link) moved a privilege motion against the Karnataka Government accusing the government of inaction against the Akshaya Patra. They also protested against the handing over of the contract to supply food for the inmates of the jail to Akshaya Patra. The new allegation against the government was that all the relevant rules, guidelines and regulations regarding supply of food to the jail inmates was violated by the government in giving the contract to Akshaya Patra.
After a short debate, the Governement representative, Sri M P Prakash, Minister of Home Affairs, requested that the speaker should give some more time and assured that the government would not go back on its promise to hold an enquiry against Madhu Pandit das and his associates.
Sri M P Prakash tendered an apology for the delay in ordering an enquiry against Sri Madhu Pandit das and his various fraudulent dealings. This debate took place on the 6th of August, 2007.
The speaker rejected the Privilege Motion on the 7th of August on the grounds that just a delay in ordering an enquiry did not constitute a breach of privilege. The speaker cited the assurance of the government that it would order an enquiry against Sri Madhu Pandit das in the next few days.
