Bengaluru: BBMP Mayor Gangambike Mallikarjun voluntarily paid fine of RS 500 after she was caught using banned plastic sheet.

A few days ago, Ms Gangambike went to greet newly inducted Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and presented him a garland and a shawl along with a dry-fruit basket which was covered with a plastic sheet.

Following the incident, the photos of the courtesy call did the rounds on social media, and one image caught the attention of netizens… that of a fruit basket she presented to the chief minister which was covered in a low-grade, banned plastic sheet. They immediately raised a hue and cry and wanted to know from Gangambike how being the first citizen she could flout the plastic ban.

However, Gangambike instead of dodging the issue, took responsibility and paid a fine of Rs 500 voluntarily.
