With the demise of Shakuntala Bangarappa, wife of former chief minister late S Bangarappa, dispute between their sons Kumar and Madhu is likely come to the fore once again.

‘Who will conduct the last rites of Shakuntala Bangarappa?’ This question cropped up as soon as the news of her demise spread. Before S Bangarappa death, a dispute between himself and his two sons became a talking point when he joined the BJP and the situation continued till the former chief minister’s death.

But his relatives and supporters thought that both Kumar Bangarappa and Madhu Bangarappa would forget all the differences. But Kumar Bangarappa was not allowed to participate in the last rites of Bangarappa.

Madhu Bangarappa completed all the rituals. Once again a similar quesntion cropped up with the demise of Shakuntala.

Former MLA Dr G D Narayanappa, who is the husband of Shakuntala’s sister already raised his voice in this issue.

When Bangarappa died, Kumar Bangarappa did not make this an issue. Now, Kumar should be given an opportunity to perform his duty as a son. Otherwise, people would protest against this, Narayanappa said.

The mortal remains of Bangarappa had been brought to his native place Sorab from Bangalore. Throughout the procession of Bangarappa’s body, Kumar was with that procession and at the stadium when his mortal remains were placed for public view.

A verbal duel ensued between Madhu and Kumar and the former sent the latter out of of place. Madhu lit the pyre and Kumar was not allowed.

Now, supporters of Kumar Bangrappa expect that their leader would perform the last rites of his mother at Bangaradama in Sorab on Wednesday.
