Currently, there is a nation-wide lockdown in India, with people being urged to practice social distancing in order to curb the spread of the Coronavirus.
But despite the lockdown rules, actor-politician Nikhil Kumaraswamy, son of former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, had a wedding where social distancing looked like a distant dream.

Due to corona, poor people have postponed marriages at homes— Ballekatte Chikkappa Thimmesh (@BCThimmesh) April 17, 2020
But Nikhil is holding his marriage despite being
Grandson of Ex PM Devegowda,
Son of Ex CM Kumaraswamy
Won’t this hurt the poor who respected lockdown?
Will these so-called leaders ever think of people’s betterment?

The rules of lockdown and social distancing need to be equal for everyone, otherwise, there is a high chance of the lockdown being rendered ineffective.
