COVID rules defied: Karnataka Health minister’s associate throws birthday bash

Instead of wearing masks, using sanitiser and maintaining social distance, health minister B Sriramulu's close aide in Gadag threw a party to celebrate his birthday, which saw many in attendance.

Health minister B Sriramulu was at the receiving end of flak several weeks ago after his rally at Chitradurga attracted thousands of people. Now his associate in Gadag has allegedly thrown a party, defying restrictions on gathering and the protocol of wearing masks


The associate is identified as Shivangoud SH and had invited over 200 people at Srinivas Bhavan Hall for an overnight party. Residents in Gadag believe that no action will be initiated against him and that the whole event will be buried under the carpet.
