Usually, the process of such government compensations takes minimum one year. Since Praveen and the Karnataka government both Hindutva supporters, the compensation delivered by Chief Minister himself within 48 hours.
Following Praveen's murder, CM Bommai had stated that, if the need arose, the "Yogi model" administration that had been in place in Uttar Pradesh would also take effect in the southern state to cope with anti-national and sectarian groups who were attempting to sow instability.
