Bengaluru: When Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 14 April announced the extension of coronavirus lockdown, all states and Union Territories have sprung into action to enforce stricter guidelines.
However, former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy have decided to go ahead as with his son’s wedding during the lockdown period. He seems to defy the Central government’s order to remain indoors.
“Ramanagara district is Green Zone and Bangalore has been declared a Red Zone. So, I had decided to get the marriage done in Ramanagara itself. The coronavirus pandemic is a concern in some districts. But I pray that in this district none of these issues should arise. Even with this family function we should not have any issues,” HDK said.
He added that he had consulted several doctors in his family to evaluate the threat from the coronavirus before going ahead with his son’s wedding.
“In our family itself, we have 12-13 doctors whom we consulted and decided. I urge party workers, villagers and well-wishers not to come to the venue, and to bless the couple from their home. In the future, we will hold a reception and invite everyone,” the former Karnataka CM said.
