Marilingegowda Malipatil an RTI Activist in Karnataka has got a reply that the oath taking ceremony of HD Kumaraswamy resulted in an expenditure of Rs.42,89,950 for the state exchequer. The oath taking ceremony took place on the 23rd of May – 2018 in front of Vidhana Soudha.
The expenses of lodging, transportation, hospitality, security of Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Mayawati, Chandrababu Naidu resulted in a huge expenditure of Rs. 43,55,040/-. The cost of garlands and bouquets amounted to Rs.65,100/- the RTI reply said.
Such indulgence, particularly when the number of suicides of farmers is at alarming rate deserves harsh condemnation. Satyavijayi had reported yesterday that HD Kumaraswamy brother HD Revanna the PWD Minister travels 350 km every day as his astrologer suggested that him to avoid sleeping in Bengaluru.
Now, the RTI reply given to Patil, says it all; Kumaraswamy who is criticized by the opposition for his Opportunistic Politics has proven once again that his advice of austerity is a litany of lies.
