In his statement to the Police, driver has said, “I am perplexed at how the accident occurred”. While it is surmised that, the driver may have had fatigue that caused the accident.

While the injured were travelling in the car bearing registration number (KA-51, MN-5678), Prahlad Modi’s daughter and son-in-law were travelling in another SUV in tow, which also rammed into the rear side of the car moving front, soon after the accident. They escaped unhurt.

As the air bags of the car opened, the injured escaped from the grievous injuries they could have suffered otherwise.

    So their car was Mercedes , a German mode, expensive, and this is PM Modi’s brother and his family. Imnteresting, as Modi projects himself as ‘clean’. Well the same old corrupt politicians.
    “Suttur Seer Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Swamiji, who called on Modis at the hospital, enquired about their condition and also wished them a speedy recovery.
    Well, the ;police will not register a case here involving this Mercedes, because, you know, those concerned are related to PM Mod!
    As the news spread, VIPs including Excise Minister K. Gopalaiah and Sports Minister K.C. Narayanagowda, Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha, MLAs S.A. Ramdas and G.T. Devegowda, former MLA R. Balaraj among several others rushed to the hospital in droves”
    What a bunch of slavish neanderthals!! Well, this is no different from Gandhis, and Congress PM in power.
    Third world India.

    Inspite of the headlines, one wonders the need for the Suttur Seer’s presence, looking at Modi’s family , not in any serious distress., although the car looks in bad shape. Not to worry, another donation from a German company for another contract in India!
    The usually slack and lazy police officers, fearing their transfers, rushed to the spot and put the injured in an ambulance and sent to Suttur Seer’s hospital for VIP treatment!

    Well, well, just like the Gandhi family ear in power! Why not the DC, the MC, the Mayor, and prasadams from Chamundeshwari temple and other temples etc.. too? After special poojas!
    What a third world country, which worships not only the PM in npower but all his extended family members!!

    Is not JSS Hospital , a low level hospital for this Modi family?
    I guess, a special plane will arrive to take them to Bangalore or even to AIIMS, New Delhi.
    Nothing but the best medical attention would do for this precious family. Go ahead Narendra Modi.

  4. A V Prasanna says:

    Good GOD, Now JSS will be converted to AIIMS. Mysoreans will feel happy and proud.

    Hello Biddappa
    Also read the piece in Indian Express. It explains why this person and his family is given Royal treatment in the JSS Hospital.
    This quote in that Indian Express article: “Meanwhile, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Brijesh Kalappa demanded the government should respond the same whenever accidents involving “common people” happen. “The government is not concerned about the common people travelling on the road but serves only VIPs. The government was steadfast when it came to the treatment of Prahlad Modi, brother of the prime minister after he was injured in a mishap on the Mysore-Nanjangud route. The tragedy of the current government is that it does not even acknowledge the deaths of common commuters on the same 10-lane Bengaluru-Mysuru expressway.”
    While Narendra Modi is busy blaming Sonya Gandhi and the Nehru Dynasty, , this hypocrite thug, is no better than them.
    I agree with the AAP leader there.
    The question is: Is not this JSS Hospital, too low class for the Narendra Modi’s relatives? They deserve nothing less than the famous Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai.
    So, Natrendra Modi, the hypocrite, do it now. Only dim witted , and deluded BJP followers, thinks you are different from the Congress PMs..

  7. Mann Ki Baat, Bisi Bele Baat! says:

    Modi’s brother says, he borrowed the Mercedes and the driver from his friend Rajasekhar.
    This car is smashed up and is a write off
    Do not worry, Rajasekhar, Narendra Modi will arrange a shiny new top range model of Mercedes to be imported from Germany and given to you.

  8. Rao Bhamidimarri says:

    The Deccan Herald says this family of Narendra Modi have left Mysore, for Ahmadabad. It does not say, but must have been a special plane, thanks to Narendra Modi. No different from Gandhi’s. One treatment for them, but another for the poor.
    That must be the due to the blessing of Suttur Seer!
    They also, visited Chamundi Hill and had special darshan of the Goddess, thanks to Narendra Modi. All is well.
    https://www.deccanherald.com/national/west/pm-modis-brother-leaves-for-ahmedabad-with-family-says-mothers-health-is-stable-1175994.html
    Well, at Ahmadabad, their territory, they will go to a top class hospital.

  9. AAP volunteer says:

    Never realized he was a critic of Modi government and staged protests against Modi government . He deserved hin wife and his brother is a critical of Mofi. Then why even opposition parties queuing up to visit the hospital to meet Mr Prahlad modi? I don’t understand.
