Questions raised about celebrations within the party
However, it is not that everything is going well in the party regarding this grand event. Many questions have been raised about this celebration within the Congress itself. Some people say that this is being done to campaign for him as a face before the Karnataka assembly elections. Organizers expect around one million people from across the state to attend the event, to be held at the Shamanur Palace grounds, for which elaborate food and drink arrangements have been made.
Siddaramaiah does not know the exact date of birth
A Kannada music video has also surfaced on the occasion, whose lyrics are ‘Siddaramaiah the next chief minister’. This event is being organized by ‘Shri Siddaramaiah-75 Amrit Mahotsav Samiti’. Let us tell you that 10 years ago, in 2012, he also organized a grand program on his 65th birthday. Siddaramaiah became the Chief Minister after winning the 2013 assembly elections. Siddaramaiah has said on several occasions that he does not know his exact date of birth and that his date of birth was written as 3 August 1947 by the headmaster Rajappa in class 5th and since then he celebrates his birthday on the same day.
