Munikrishna, who had served as Mysuru SP for long in the 80s, Dr. Ganapathy said that he could recollect two important contributions of Munikrishna when had served as SP here — One the way he quelled the communal riots that flared up in city by deftly handling the situation and the other was his successful effort in reviving wrestling (kusti) in city which was facing bad days.

“Though Mysuru Mithra is a regional Kannada morninger and covered five districts, its name and fame has spread throughout the State. It is befitting that the University of Mysore considered KBG’s decades long services to journalism and the society and bestowed him the Honorary Doctorate of the University,” he said and wished Dr. KBG a long and healthy life so that he could continue his service to the society.
