Udupi, Aug 12, 2021: The practice of respecting the Chief Minister with ‘Guard of Honor,’ is all set to reach history pages.
Chief Minister Basaravaj Bommai told reporters at Udupi that an order to stop Guard of Honour at public places will be issued shortly.
“The practice of giving Guard of Honor should be only during specific functions of the police department. It should not be given in public places to me when I arrive or go. I will issue an order once I return,” he told.
On replacing flower bouquets and garlands with Kannada books, he said his intention was not to hurt the flower sellers.
“I have no intentions to hurt the flower sellers. It is banned only in government functions. People still can give it individually,” he said.
Bommai also asked the party workers not to put any banners welcoming him.
When reporters asked him the ‘magic’ with which he silenced the unhappiness among the MLAs (on cabinet expansion), Bommai said he did not have any.
“The only ‘magic,’ that works is love and affection,” he said.
