Wildlife Week: Forest Minister Shankar offers puja to Dasara jumbos

Minister Shankar to join Congress soon

Mysuru, October 5:- Forest Minister R Shankar offered puja to Mysuru Dasara jumbos and distributed kits to mahouts and kavadis at Mysuru Palace premises on Friday.

This week is celebrated as Wildlife Week. He distributed kits containing umbrella, jerkin, uniform, water bottles and cap. He will be visiting Chamundeshwari Temple and Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens in the city as well.

“I will be joining the Congress party in the coming days. Hopefully, I will be in the cabinet. I don’t know about the cabinet expansion and change in ministries. High command will take a decision regarding this. Rumours are being spread that I am joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which is far from truth,” he added.

He expressed his condolences over the demise of Deputy Mayor of BBMP Ramila Umashankar. (MR/KS)
