kpcc media cell: When coalition MLAs made me CM, Kumaraswamy didn’t say anything, am I stupid enough to believe his words?: DCM DK Shivakumar lashed out.

“Gopalaiah and ST Somashekhar told on phone that if DK Sivakumar is announced as Chief Minister, they will come back from Mumbai. But Kumaraswamy did not mention my name,” said DCM DK Shivakumar indirectly attacking Kumaraswamy.

Speaking at the party joining program of former JDS MLAs Gourishankar and Manjunath held at Bharat Jodo Hall, he said:

Kumaraswamy, who said that 40 people from the Congress party are in touch with the BJP, on the other hand, says that if DK Shivakumar becomes the Chief Minister, he will support 19 MLAs from the JDS party. Are we stupid enough to listen to them?

1 of our party to the government…
Former Congress MLAs Gauri Shankar and R Manjunath’s words

R Manjunath With the intention of providing justice to the voters of our constituency, Siddaramaiah’s administration and D.K. I, Gowrishankar and Prasad Gowda are joining the Congress party following Shivakumar’s leadership.

I was a Congressman for 20-25 years. I worked with SM Krishna for 19 years. After he became the governor, I contested the election. I worked 24/7 under all circumstances including covid. However, I lost the election by a margin of four and a half thousand votes.

We left the party and joined the Congress after the JDS party formed an alliance with the BJP. BJP leaders have harassed us for the past 15 years. We cannot ally with such people. We cannot form an alliance with those who oppose the development of the field. Even though I am an MLA, they said alas about giving grants. Troubled for four years. Because of this, the people of the constituency should join the Congress.

Even if the plans of the Congress government reach the people, no one talks about them. But BJP lies to hit the truth on the head. These government guarantee schemes have reached people. Many projects under the corporation are reaching out to people from all walks of life. How many ministers went to jail during Yeddyurappa’s government? Such a taint has never come to the Congress government.

We have D.K. I have a lot of admiration for Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah. He has seen us with great love and trust. We cannot go along with the communal BJP. We have had a very clean politics. We need cooperation from the government. It should be good for the people of our constituency.

I am the one who has brought grants to the High Court Metelliri constituency in the entire country in the BJP government. However, he was not allowed to work. He transferred the officers and made the work go ahead. I will work for Congress party with party loyalty and discipline.

Gauri Shankar family worked shoulder to shoulder with the Devegowda family for 35 years. But today we are joining Congress party in your presence today against BJP and JDS alliance. Siddaramaiah is the Chief Minister who has given many fortunes for the benefit of all races in the entire country.

D.K. Sivakumar is a dynamic leader. Sivakumar is the hero who calls us at any time and asks what is our problem. After I contested the Zilla Panchayat election, my father used to call me Mini DK. D.K. Our father knew that Sivakumar had talent in him. That’s why they used to call it that way. Although I liked his political style, I could not speak like him because I was in a different party. Deputy Chief Ministers who happen to be my good fortune, our D.K. Sivakumar.

Many prophesy. But none of that will happen. But Shivakumar predicted before the election that Congress will win 135 seats. Accordingly, the Congress party has won 135 seats. His prediction came true. I asked Shivakumar why he said so precisely. That is our commitment to the party. With that commitment, it is possible if everyone joins hands, he said.

Dasarhalli and Tumkur rural constituencies are like twin constituencies. Me and Manjunath together D.K. Under the leadership of Shivakumar, we decided to join the Congress party and join forces with him. Otherwise we decided to stay at home without doing politics.

We have met Kumaraswamy and told him that if we form an alliance with the BJP, we will not continue in the party. In the villages of my constituency, our workers do not join hands with the BJP. To that extent, we will do stubborn politics.
