Bangalore(DHNS):Governor K Rosaiah on Saturday honoured 85 freedom fighters on the 64th anniversary of the Quit India movement.
It is said there were many others who should have been at the felicitation programme, but only a few made it because the event was hurriedly convened.
“There was no formal invitation to us. Only when I approached the Deputy Commissioner’s (DC) office, was I informed about the felicitation programme.
Subsequently, I and the other freedom fighters from our Samiti reached out to all the members,” said 93-year-old N R Mathod, the president of the All India Freedom Fighters’ Samiti.
This view was echoed by others who attended the function. According to a senior citizen, he was informed at 2.30 pm that he will be felicitated in the evening.
