Datty Sadananda Gowda, wife of the Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, believes that her husband is capable of dealing with challenging moments in politics. However, Mrs. Gowda said discussions about politics were unwelcome when Mr. Gowda came home.

Mrs. Gowda was speaking to presspersons after visiting her parent's home at the town of Guddehosur in Kodagu district on Sunday. Mrs. Gowda had arrived here on Saturday night, according to sources.

She told presspersons she was happy to be home and felt special to be the Chief Minister's wife.

To a question on when the ever-smiling Chief Minister became grim, Mrs. Gowda said that he lost his temper when he came across indiscipline.

Her brothers Mani Kumar and Vishu Kumar, who also reside in Guddehosur, said they were proud of Mr. Gowda. They said he knew the problems of the people of Kodagu district because he had been the Member of Parliament from the Mangalore-Kodagu assembly constituency earlier. Mr. Mani Kumar said the Government had recently sanctioned funds for the construction of a hanging bridge across the Cauvery, which would connect villages in the Kodagu district to Periyapatna in Mysore district. “Mr. Gowda will respond positively to the grievances of Kodagu district,” he said.

Mrs. Gowda said she was happy with the Chief Minister's performance in the one month he had been in office. “Mr. Gowda will go a long way in politics and continue to do a good job in fulfilling the aspirations of the people of the State,” she said.
