Mayor wraps gift for CM in plastic, Pays Fine


Bengaluru Mayor Ganagambike Malikarjun, who has been actively campaigning against the use of plastic, committed a faux pas by giving a plastic wrap basket of dry fruits to Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa on July 30. She acknowledged her mistake and took a step to make amends after she was called out.

A video of her presenting the basket to the CM during her courtesy visit went viral and was criticised by environmentalists. The mayor sought to rectify the error by voluntarily paying the mandated fine of Rs 500.
