Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], April 16 (ANI): Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister Dr Ashwath Narayan today said that if former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy, being a law-abiding citizen, does not follow guidelines then action will be taken against him.
The Deputy CM made this comment when he was asked about Kumaraswamy's son Nikhil's marriage, which has been fixed on April 17 at a farmhouse near Bidadi in Ramnagar.
Narayan said: "Any violation of the guidelines will not be tolerated. We will ask the concerned authority to film the entire event and document it."
He said that so far Kumaraswamy has made public statements that guidelines will be followed.
"HD Kumaraswamy is a people's representative. He has been in public life for a long time. He should abide by the guidelines," Narayan told ANI.
"Since he has been in a responsible position for a long time and he was the Chief Minister, guidelines must be followed in his son's marriage as per the rules amid COVID-19 scare. After the marriage, there must not be any excuses. He cannot say that people came without an invitation," the Deputy Chief Minister added.
Kumaraswamy clarified that only his family members will attend the marriage and that there will be around 60 to 70 people.
"All guidelines will be followed as per the central government directives," he said. (ANI)
