Bengaluru: Did Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah change his official car recently because a crow sat on the one, which he had been using for the past three years, for a good 20 minutes.
While the Chief Minister has denied it, the incident has become the talk of the town, more so of the political circles.
Recently, a picture of a crow sitting on Siddaramaiah's Toyota Fortuner emerged and the incident was soon linked with the move to change the official car of the CM.
Since many believe crows bring bad luck, the two development set off speculation that the CM became jittery after the stubborn bird decided to take rest on the government vehicle and defied moves to be removed.
However, Siddaramaiah denied this and debunked the crow-car connection. He said he had been using the car for three years and had recently asked it to be replaced.
Generally, Siddaramaiah is known to be a rationalist who doesn't believe in superstition. In fact, he had once taken a pledge to purge superstition from Karnataka and ban astrology shows on Kannada radio.
So, is there really a connection or not? We believe, only the crow knows.
