  1. Hey Covid19! says:

    Really? Did she use the above model to limit the number of guests, and ordering wearing o masks by the congregation, when Yediyurapa and his mass of relatives attended the marriage of Yediyurappa’s grand nephew held in the Lalitha Mahal palace recently?
    The photograph from the SOM here: shows a crowd of people with Yediyurappa, none of them wearing mask! Of course, she knows that had she tried to do that, she would be transferred to Mangaluru harbour to over see the loading of smelly fish cartons for export.
    She could only cajole and threaten ordinary mortals.
    One rule for Yediyurappa and other powerful politicians and yet another rule for ordinary Mysoreans.
    She should stop boasting as Covid-19 cases are coming down in India any way. But she would boast anyway with thepurpose of getting a presidential medal and cerificate for controlling Covid-19 cases in Mysuru district, using her influence with the Telangana and Hyderabad political leaders
