Interesting gathering of the BJP crowd of 40% commission politicians. Huchegowda’s ( he changed his name to Ambarish, which means nothing as he was a Gowda any way with bad habits) wife, the Andhrudu too.
Where is pretend Maharani Pramoda Devi and Pretend Wadiyar Raghuveer these days?
Why not the government take over the entire Ambavilas Palace, by amending the constitution if necessary to prevent Pramoda Devi causing mischief, so that this structure becomes national property and museum?
I see this scoundrel MP Simha says nothing these days, after the flooding of the Tipu Highway and the disasters of robbery and toll gate collection!
Raiding his home will net bundles of not only Rupees notes , but Euro and USD notes too.
Is entry free or any tickets to be purchased?.
“7.15 pm to 9.30 pm: Musical evening by singer and music director Raghu Dixit and troupe”
In the name of music this Raghu Dixit, who looks a drug baron of Mexico drug cartel, produces a cacophony of noises, and the only fame he has is to perform as one of the bands in a a list of African , Asian and Caribbean bands , in events like the Queen’s jubilee celebrations.
His son looks like an urchin in the streets of Mexico shanti towns!
Why can’t they play straight police bands which attracted people to the parks and they if still exist are very good?
Program is organised by DC of mysore . Nothing to do with politicals
