Former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and Kannada actress Radhika’s relationship finally out

Former Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy and Kannada actress Radhika’s relationship seems to be finally out in the open with the two making their first public appearance together — and what better day to acknowledge the association than V-day eve?

The two spent more than five hours in each other’s company on Friday at the Ashta Pavithra Nagamandalotsava, a religious ceremony organised by the actress’ family.

The ceremony was held at Paltaje in Salethoor village near Vittla, about 50 km away from Mangalore on Friday. Kumaraswamy stayed all through the ceremony which went on till late night and stood very close to Radhika. But neither of them smiled or looked at each other.

HDK arrived at Radhika’s farm house, where the function was being held, at around 5.30 pm and after meeting her family members, he joined in the ceremony at about 6.15 pm.

Mediapersons were kept out of the function till late in the night. Radhika came to the function an hour after Kumaraswamy arrived.

The former CM had removed his shirt and was seen participating in the ceremony with a shawl wrapped around him and Radhika was wearing a black churidar.

Till date, Kumaraswamy has never been seen at any public function with Radhika or her family, though he often visits her house.

Later, he delivered a speech expressing his displeasure over the communal tension prevailing in the district. He also urged the government to improve the roads for the benefit of pilgrims visiting the district.

Radhika’s family had organised the ceremony on the advice of priests as their newly purchased property was supposed to be under “Naga Dosha.”
