Former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil Kumaraswamy married Revathi on April 17, 2020, at a farmhouse near Bidadi, Karnataka.
This comes amid the lockdown in the country due to COVID-19 pandemic. The wedding was an intimate affair with very close family members in attendance.
While the event was earlier meant to be on a grand scale in Ramanagar, keeping social distancing in mind, it has now been decided to conduct it only in the presence of family members.
Kumaraswamy appealed, “Please bless the bride and the groom from where you are. Once the pandemic passes, the couple will stand before you for your blessings. If everyone gathers now, it will send a wrong message to society.”
Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Ashwath Narayan has said action would be taken against the former chief minister “without a second thought” if guidelines were not followed in the wedding.
Deve Gowda, former prime minister, blessed the newlywed couple. In a video message, Nikhil’s father HD Kumaraswamy apologised to his supporters for not inviting them but requested to shower their blessings from their homes, without violating the lockdown rules
