Karnataka Congress chief D K Shivakumar's daughter on Thursday got engaged to the son of coffee baron VG Siddhartha, the founder of Cafe Coffee Day, who died last year.
Amartya, the groom-to-be, is also the grandson of former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader SM Krishna.
Apart from close family and friends, the engagement ceremony in Bengaluru was attended by Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Shivakumar and Amartya's family have not planned grand celebrations and selected people were invited for the engagement ceremony.
The marriage is expected to take place on February 19, 2021.
