Kempegowda Jayanti to be low-key affair

The birth anniversary of Nadaprabhu Kempegowda is likely to be a low- key affair this time. The model code of conduct for the Assembly elections may cast a shadow on the event which coincides with Karaga on April 25.

A senior corporator of the Palike said a sum of Rs two crore is kept aside for the event this year. However, a meeting to discuss the issue scheduled on Friday, could not be held since only a few corporators turned up. Various committees have been formed for the celebrations. However, the Commissioner cannot release funds to the committees without seeking permission from the Election Commission, another corporator said.
