KPCC President demands Padma Shri for Puneeth

November 4, 2021

Bengaluru: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President D.K. Shivakumar has  demanded ‘Padma Shri’ award for Sandalwood star Puneeth Rajkumar, who passed away in Bengaluru  last week following a massive cardiac arrest.

Addressing a press meet at KPCC office here yesterday, D.K. Shivakumar said that Puneeth Rajkumar, who was popularly known as ‘Appu’, very much deserves the honour.

Maintaining that Puneeth must be remembered by naming roads after him, he said that the late actor must be posthumously awarded ‘Padma Shri’, ‘Karnataka Shri’ and such other top awards.

Recalling that thespian and Kannada matinee idol Dr. Rajkumar, the father of Puneeth Rajkumar, was honoured with ‘Karnataka Shri’ award when S. Bangarappa was the Chief Minister three decades ago, D.K. Shivakumar urged Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to take measures to honour Puneeth Rajkumar with prestigious civilian awards.

  1. A Puneet fan says:

    We do not want this Corrupt rogue politicians to advocate Puneet for any award! His works stand by their own merit. He supported 26 orphanages, 16 old age homes, taken up 1800 children’s education and unlimited support to girls education, He had supported every one of noble causes on time from flood relief to covid care.
    Dkshi never spared an opportunity to loot the poor . We have seen the videos of his IT raid for 2 days!
    Advocacy from a person like this corrupt politician is an insult to the noble soul!

  2. Suresh says:

    Puneet’s family and friends should dissociate themselves from this corrupt man. Puneeth’s work does not need any advocacy from any corrupt leader like DH+KSHI or Gowdas or BSY and Nidderamaiah! He stands tall on his own merit. These vultures fly over any dead body if they can cash in on the event. If you want to know how clean DKshi is – here is the news from his own party members –
