Siddaramaiah declines honorary doctorate degree from UoM

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday said that he had declined to accept the honorary doctorate proposed by the University of Mysore.

In a tongue in cheek reply to media queries, Siddaramaiah said, “I do not hold a PhD. Hence I said no to the doctorate.”

M S S Kumar, a Syndicate member of the UoM on Friday had said that he had proposed Siddaramaiahs name for the honorary doctorate as the latter was not only an alumnus of the varsity, he had also excelled in political administration and economics despite hailing from a rural background.
