Nikhil Gowda, son of former Karnataka Chief Minister, got married to Revathi on Friday morning amid the Coronavirus lockdown. The politician's son tied the knot in a low-key event at a farmhouse in Kethiganahalli, near Bengaluru. After the wedding, pictures of the newlywed bride and groom went viral on social media. However, the Kumaraswamy dad and son are now getting bashed by netizens for breaking COVID-19 safety norms.
After seeing Nikhil Gowda and Revathi's wedding pictures on social media, Twitterati started trolling the family for not maintaining social distancing in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic. Netizens are wondering how they got permission for a wedding ceremony amid this lockdown.
