On Sunday, D K Shivakumar, who had just been sworn in as the deputy chief minister of Karnataka, claimed that he is “not happy” despite the party’s resounding victory in the state and that the impending Lok Sabha elections scheduled for next year are the next target.
“We got 135 plus seats in the assembly elections, but I am not happy. Don’t come to my or Siddaramaiah’s house,” Shivakumar stated in a speech to the party’s cadre in Bengaluru. The Lok Sabha elections are our next aim, so we must fight hard.
Siddaramaiah, the chief minister of Karnataka, and Shivakumar paid respect to former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi on the 32nd anniversary of his passing in the KPCC office in Bengaluru earlier in the day.
No members of the Bharatiya Janata Party have lost their lives as a result of terrorism, despite claims to the contrary from the party, according to newly elected chief minister Siddaramaiah.
