Union Minister for Urban Development Muppavarapu Venkaiah Naidu surprised Karnataka government officials when he said no to a suite booked for him at Hotel Lalit Ashok in Bengaluru!
For a minute, the state government officials were kept wondering as to why was Mr Naidu, who was specially invited to inaugurate the National Public Communicators Workshop, was backtracking from entering a suite specially booked for him.
They were wondering whether he was upset over the suite allotment or wanted a better one! However, the officials were in for more surprise when Naidu stumped them saying that he would prefer to take an ordinary room instead of a suite. As the officials were clearly at loss of words, Naidu said as he was in Bengaluru for only a couple of hours, he did not wanted an expensive room and hence would settle for an ordinary room. This cleared the air for officials who appreciated Naidu for his simplicity.
