Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai announced a tax-exemption for Puneet Raj Kumar starrer film Gandhada Gudi, which is based on protection and conservation of flora and fauna.

“I am very happy to participate in this function as it gives an impression that Appu (Puneet) is still with us. People across the state, from Kollegal to Bidar, in every village, still have the photo of Puneet Raj Kumar in their villages to show their love and affection for him,” he told reporters.

“It is hard to believe that he was not with them. The amount of love and affection that Puneet had won from the people is remarkable and that is possible because of the blessings of God,” he added.

Bommai said Puneet was popular as a child artist and acted in several films, but his works in the Kannada film made him the heartthrob of many.

The CM said Karnataka Ratna will be presented posthumously to Puneet in front of Vidhana Soudha on November 1. This award is the highest civilian recognition accorded to achievers.

Apart from this event, three more events on Puneet will be held in different parts of Bengaluru in a ten-day programme.
