M Jayaram, the legislator from Turuvekere in Karnataka’s Tumakuru district, celebrated his birthday on Friday (April 10) amid the lockdown. The BJP MLA also cut a huge chocolate cake wearing white gloves. There were children and elders at the party. They were served biryani in Gubbi town. From the pictures and videos that are doing the round on social media, it seems the MLA and the other guests present at the party have no regard for COVID-19.

This is not the first time a political leader has attended public gatherings. Last month, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa attended the marriage ceremony of a BJP leader at Belgavi on March 15. Next day, hundreds of Congress workers attended an event to honour the newly-appointed state party president D K Shivakumar.
