Belagavi, Nov 24: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah created yet another controversy by taking a chopper ride to be a part of the wedding celebrations of his cabinet colleague Ramesh Jarkhiholi’ son. The chopper ride cost the state exchequer a whopping Rs 6 Lakh in total.

When Gali Janaradhan Reddy’s daughter wedding was on the anvil, CM said, he was against attending big fat weddings. However, his move to fly from Belagavi to Gokak to wish the newly-wed couple has taken many by surprise. Though the wedding was not on the lines of Brahmani’s (Janardhan Reddy’s daughter) wedding but reports suggest that expenses for this wedding too ran into crores of rupees.

Siddaramaiah accompanied by his cabinet colleagues G Parmeshwara, K J George, Chief Whip Ashok Pattana and MLA H M Revanna took off at 7.30 am on November 22 and landed back in the newly-built helipad near Suvarna Soudha in Belagavi after wishing the newly-wed couple.

It is not clear as of now that who would bear the chopper travel costs with this being a private visit with no other government programmes listed on the way for the day based on DPAR records.
