Karnataka Leaders Condole Coffee Day Owners Death
By satya sruthi On 31 Jul, 2019  


Bengaluru: Cafe Coffee Day founder VG Siddhartha, the son-in-law of former Karnataka Chief Minister SM Krishna, was found dead this morning more than 36 hours after he went missing from a bridge near Mangaluru in Karnataka. His body had washed ashore the Netravati river near Ullal in Mangaluru.

Soon after the news of his death broke, political leaders in Karnataka condoled the founder's death on Twitter.

Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa tweeted his condolence in Kannada. "The death of former chief minister Shri SM Krishna's son-in-law Cafe Coffee Day founder and businessman Siddhartha has been a traumatic event. May the Lord have mercy on his family. May his soul find peace. #OmShanti," he wrote.

Former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said the state had "lost a great businessman".

"I am shocked to hear the news of the death of businessman and close friend Siddhartha. Siddhartha, a friend of the last 25 years, had introduced Karnataka's coffee industry to the world. Thousands of employees were accommodated in their organizations. With his death Karnataka has lost a great businessman," he tweeted in Kannada.

Dr. G Parameshwara, who was the deputy chief minister in the HD Kumaraswamy government that collapsed last week, wrote: "The news is unthinkable. My deepest condolences to Shri SM Krishna and other family members that #VGSiddhartha has left behind. This is a huge loss to our entrepreneurial fraternity! His dream #CafeCoffeeDay will live with us forever."
