A pall of gloom has descended over Varuna constituency especially at Siddaramanahundi and surrounding places where Rakesh Siddaramaiah, the elder son of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, was making it his political launchpad. He was affectionately called “Chikka Sahebru” by the villagers who were impressed by his pro-people and pro-poor initiatives.
Rakesh’s mortal remains would be flown to the city from Brussels Airport and is expected to reach on August 1 (tomorrow) at 10:30 am. Hundreds of people have already assembled at Siddaramanahundi and CM’s house at Sharadadevinagar. The funeral will take place at T Katoor farmhouse.
