Oscar Fernandes’ mortal remains brought to Bengaluru, Rahul to attend funeral

Bengaluru: Congress leaders, headed by Karnataka unit President D.K. Shivakumar, received the mortal remains of veteran party leader and former Union Minister Oscar Fernandes at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIAL) here.

Meanwhile, top Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ranjit Singh Surjewala, and K.C.Venugopal are flying down to Bengaluru for his funeral on Thursday, party sources said.

Shivakumar said all top leaders from Kashmir to Kanyakumari are visiting Bengaluru to pay their homage to the tall leader.

The mortal remains of Fernandes will be kept at the party office between 10 a.m. and 12 noon on Thursday and fans and supporters are requested to pay their respects there as the public is not allowed at Saint Patrick Church and the cemetery where the final rites of Oscar Fernandes will be conducted, he said.

Fernandes passed away on September 13 at a hospital in Mangaluru as he was being treated for a head injury he had suffered while practising yoga at his residence in July.
