Bengaluru: Former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy is in trouble. 

The Karnataka high court has asked the Karnataka government to submit a report on how it gave permission to the holding of the former CM Nikhil’s wedding in Ramanagara. 

The high-profile wedding was hosted in a private land in spite of the coronavirus restrictions. Though Kumaraswamy himself said that he had invited not more than 50 guests (all family members) sources added that more than 200 people had attended the event. 

Visuals from the wedding were proof enough that social distancing had been compromised with.

Interestingly, when Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa was asked a question on the same, he was somewhat evasive in his answer saying that HDK had done nothing wrong and had managed to keep the event a low-key one. 

As per a Karnataka government ruling, weddings are allowed, provided not more than 75-100 people gathered.

Around 40 cars were seen rushing to Ramanagara to be a part of the event that day. As per reports, the Gowda family had given a list of the numbers of these cars to the police.

A day before the wedding, as reported by India Today, a lot of trucks were seen going to the venue, carrying tents.

The former CM also informed the media that he had taken a lot of suggestions from doctors before he decided to go ahead with the wedding.

To keep a tab over the wedding, Karnataka government officials had been instructed to video it. Any violations, sources add, will attract penalty.

While HD Kumaraswamy rushed to get his son married, another CM Yogi Adityanath did not even attend the funeral of his father who passed away. He had even urged his family not to compromise on the social distancing aspect as it might lead to spread of coronavirus.
