DKS keeps mum over future cm remarks
Bengaluru: KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar keeps silent over future chief minister controversy in the party.
After few diehard supporters of opposition leader Siddaramaiah openly advocated that Siddarmaiah will be the next Chief Minister. Congress legislator's statement has not gone well in the party high command. Even after party high command instructions, few legislators have echoed their statements calling Siddaramaiah as their future CM.
However, KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar has downplayed this statement, when reporters draw his attention over the remarks of a few Congress MLAs, he said that anyone can become the Chief Minister of Karnataka by citing previous precedents. Among 224 MLA including defeated MLAs of Congress, anyone can become the CM. When Devaraj Urs and Ramakrishna Hegde became the CM, they have not won any elections, Mr. Shivakumar remarked.
Taking a dig at revenue minister R. Ashok, KPCC President said that Mr. Ashok should look into his party affairs first, then he can speak about Congress party affairs, he chided.
To give moral support to families who suffered during Covid, the KPCC has organized 30 days state-wide abhiyan. Congress warriors will meet at least 200 plus families who suffered during lockdown and Covid.
After collecting ground-level situations of the problem facing by the families across the state, KPCC will pressurize the state government for help, Mr. Shivakumar said.
Abyiyan will start from grama panchayats to parliament and from block level to towns. During 30 days campaign, party workers will reach the nook and corner of the state.Read:
