Donkeys honoured with awards in Bangalore

Vatal Nagaraj, head of a regional political party, has honoured two donkeys and presented them with awards for their hard work and loyalty. Mr Nagaraj who showered the animals with rose petals during the event said he has decided to honour all domestic animals such as donkeys, dogs, buffaloes, cows and oxen, as they are more loyal, hardworking, disciplined and obedient than human beings. Bangalore can expect more animal awards as Nagaraj has promised to honour them every month. The politician is known for the unusual as he once rode through a town on a buffalo to protest rising fuel prices.
