Kumaraswamy son’s wedding sparks row over lockdown ‘violation’

Bengaluru: The wedding of former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil Gowda with Revathi at a farmhouse near Bidadi in Karnataka’s Ramangara district on Friday sparked a row over alleged violation of lockdown norms.

The farmhouse is 3km from Bidadi and 45km southwest of Bengaluru in the southern state

Taking objection to non-observance of social distancing by the attendees who didn’t wear face masks, Deputy Chief Minister CN Ashwath Narayan told reporters here that he had asked the district’s Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police to inquire into the charge that lockdown guidelines were violated.

“Permission was given for the wedding but with guidelines to maintain social distancing and wearing of face masks by all those attending the ceremony. If there is a violation, action will be taken,” Narayan said.

The farmhouse is 3km from Bidadi and 45km southwest of Bengaluru in the southern state.

Nikhil, 28, got engaged to Revathi, 22, a grandniece of state Congress leader M Krishnappa, in Bengaluru on February 10.

“About 100 people attended the ceremony conducted according to Hindu rites by priests in the presence of the couple’s parents, other family members and relatives,” said Sadananda.

Among those present were Nikhil’s grandfather — JD-S supremo and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, grandmother Chennamma, uncles, including former minister HD Revanna, cousin and Hassan Lok Sabha member Prajwal Hegde.
