A sum of Rs 5.5 crore will be spent to distribute food kits among 1.2o lakh families from the twin districts. Nikhil’s wedding had to be held in a simple manner owing to coronavirus scare. Each household will be given a coupon in order to get the food kit. I am spending the money kept for my son’s wedding for people, ” Kumaraswamy said.
