Mysuru, August 3:- K R Nagar Janata Dal (Secular) MLA Sa Ra Mahesh’s birthday falls on August 10. His supporters are planning a big event to mark their leader’s birthday but Mahesh feels any such move will be meaningless in the present Covid-19 situation.
In his statement to his supporters, Mahesh said, “I know you people want to celebrate my birthday on August 10 in a big way. I am indebted to your love and affection. When people are struggling because of coronavirus, it is not fair on our part to celebrate. Instead, we should be helping them. If we help people who are in distress, god will come to our rescue in some form or the other.”
The JD(S) MLA said, “I request my friends, relatives and supporters to lend a helping hand to all those in trouble to mark my birthday on August 10.”
In the same breath, Mahesh also asked all his friends and supporters not to celebrate their birthdays but help people who are in trouble. “A friend in need is a friend indeed,” opined the MLA. (MR/KS)
