Mega Siddaramaiah birthday bash in Karnataka today

Mega Siddaramaiah birthday: The highlights of the 75th birthday festivities for former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah today include many cloth banners, a music album, and enough food for 5 lakh people.

The highlights of the 75th birthday celebrations of former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah, held in Karnataka’s Davangere on Wednesday, were a cloth banner running for a length of 3 kilometers with photographs from his life, a music album with songs about him, and a feast for 5 lakh fans.

To demonstrate the widespread support and financial backing the former chief minister enjoys in the Congress in Karnataka ahead of the state elections that the party believes are likely to swing in its favor in 2023, several of the former chief minister’s supporters have organized the 75th birthday celebration of the Congress leader.

Rahul Gandhi, vice-president of the AICC, K C Venugopal, and D K Shivakumar, the state congressman, are just a few notable visitors for the occasion. Veteran Congress leaders K H Muniyappa and S R Patil, who are against Siddaramaiah’s supremacy in the Congress, are not listed as being present at the event.

The Shaman Palace Grounds in the Davangere region of central Karnataka, which is regarded as centrally positioned and accessible to people from all corners of the state, is the site of the celebrations. Because Congress has won state elections when the poll bugle has been heard from this area in the past, Davangere is likewise seen as a lucky location to launch campaigns.

One of the highlights of the celebrations is a cloth banner that spans a 3km stretch, although Siddaramaiah and other Congress leaders have been the subject of a deluge of posters and cutouts all over the city. Anand Chopra, a fan from Saundatti, is the person who produced the banner depicting Siddaramaiah’s life as a film reel. On Tuesday, the flag was transported to Davangere after being printed in Surat.

Songs on a music CD made to commemorate Siddaramaiah’s 75th birthday refer to India, which will mark its 75th anniversary of independence on August 15. The CD also includes songs that portray Siddaramaiah as the state’s potential chief minister and praise him as a political figure.

Since July 27, local caterers have been preparing up to 6 lakh Mysore Pak sweets to be served at the occasion. Up to 400 food stands will be open on Wednesday afternoon to cater to the anticipated 5 lakh attendees with Bisi Bele Bath, Veg Pulao, Curd Rice, and Mysore Pak.

The events include a laser show as well as a cultural performance. It’s not a Siddaramautsav; it’s just an Amrithotsav on the birthday. In addition, it’s a celebration of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, Siddaramaiah added in advance of the occasion. The gathering will bolster the Congress party, he claimed.

The Siddaramaiah celebrations are primarily a Congress affair with no Opposition figures in attendance, in contrast to a birthday party for former BJP CM B S Yediyurappa, which even opposition leaders like Siddaramaiah attended.

With AICC leaders Rahul Gandhi and Venugopal attending a Lingayat mutt in the area to win over the support of the dominant Lingayat population in north Karnataka, the Congress leadership has attempted to deflect attention from the event for Siddaramaiah.

“Siddaramautsav is nothing to be concerned about. We serve God Siddarama as his followers. In reaction to the elaborate festivities, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai declared, “We do utsava for God every day.
