Is this why they want us to take part in elections?

Row after row of empty seats in the Karnataka legislative assembly in Bangalore on Friday, as the Congress and JDS boycott proceedings in protest against the speaker disallowing a debate on the situation arising out of the Supreme Court’s observations while quashing his order disqualifying 16 MLAs.

A PTI report says the Congress legislature party has failed to arrive at a decision on whether to boycott the entire session, but a television report says a full boycott is on.
