Mysuru, January 29:- Former Prime Minister and Janata Dal (Secular) supremo HD Deve Gowda felicitated former Senate member of University of Mysore and retired lecturer, N Jayaram Keelara at a programme held at Senate Hall of Manasagangothri here on Sunday.
“Keelara never compromised his self-respect for anything. He came to me asking for an MLC ticket 30 years ago. Unfortunately, the ticket was given to someone else. He later didn’t approach me for anything. People like him are very rare to find,” Deve Gowda said.
Prof M Krishnegowda, Vidhana Parishath deputy speaker Marithibbegowda, Dr S Tukaram, Prof B K Chandrashekhar Gowda, Mayor B Bhagyavathi and others were present. (MR/SH).
