Amid coronavirus lockdown, many weddings and gatherings have been cancelled across the country due to lockdown to stop the spread of the deadly virus. However, Former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy managed to get his son married on Friday.
Nikhil Kumarswamy, the grandson of former PM HD Deve Gowda, got hitched with Revathi, the grandniece of former Congress Minister for Housing M Krishnappa. The wedding was shifted to a farmhouse in Ramanagara, outside Bengaluru, amidst the nationwide lockdown.
In the VVIP Kumaraswamy wedding, only two political families were involved. However, a row erupted in Kumaraswamy’s grand wedding after journalists were not allowed to enter Ramanagara — the marriage venue of former prime minister HD Deve Gowda’s grandson Nikhil Kumaraswamy. While around 30-40 cars were seen heading towards the location from Bengaluru.
Media persons were stopped at a point at least 15 km from the venue where the wedding is going to happen, said the report. Meanwhile, the photos showed no one in the wedding ceremony had worn masks or gloves and even no social distancing.
Due to the lockdown over the fear of the deadly coronavirus spreading, any such mass movement and public gatherings, weddings that are attended by a large number of people have been banned by the government.
