Bengaluru: Former BJP minister G. Janardhan Reddy who held a grand wedding spending lavishly on his daughter’s marriage has been abandoned by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after the Income Tax Department conducted raids on his house and offices.

BJP leader S. Prakash said that Reddy was a former BJP minister, but not with party since since 2011. “He was personally invited by Janartha Reddy, who was earlier his colleague. Even G. Parameshwara and many other Congress leaders also attended the wedding. So let’s not politicise it,” said Prakash when questioned about the presence of BJP state president B.S. Yedurappa in the marriage.

The Tax department conducted surveys on at least ten locations of high-end event management firms, catering and multi-media service providers, who were engaged in the extravagant wedding of the mining barons Reddy’s daughter. The officials are checking the account books, payment receipts and contract portfolios of these firms who specialise in creating special ambience and customised display for high-end spending clientele during their special events like weddings.

The officials from the tax income tax department took action after reports of heavy spending rose in the media.

The lavish wedding was in news when people were facing a cash crunch and had to queue up outside banks and ATMs to withdraw their, in the wake of the demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes.
