    “From today, the shops will remain open from 6 am to 2 pm and on Saturday and Sunday, it would be a complete lockdown, according to the decision taken in the meeting and only shops selling essential commodities would be opened, according to MLA Preetham Gowda, who has urged the public to co-operate”
    So, if Hunsur and Hassan face this lock down, what is the point of keeping shops which sell essential commodities which people may want after 2:00PM, when the lock down comes into effect,and people cannot move out of their homes.
    This MLA Gowda seems to have good brain forarranging this!
    On search,this was reported in the Hindu a year ago about this MLA Gowda:”The Shravanabelagola police in Channaryapatna taluk have registered a case against MLA for Hassan Preetham Gowda of the BJP and others on the charge of threatening to murder two JD(S) supporters. The alleged incident happened in Shravanabelagola on Wednesday night”
    What a model citizen of independent India! Independent India,should be lucky to have persons of this probity as their elected leaders!
    Well done! Jai Hind!!
