D.K. Shivakumar visits Mysuru Bar Association to thank advocates

November 27, 2019

Mysuru: Over a month after he was released from a Delhi jail following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money-laundering case, Kanakapura Congress MLA and former Minister D.K. Shivakumar visited the Mysuru Bar Association Office in the City Courts Complex this morning to express gratitude to the Association for extending moral support to him during his trial.

Speaking to presspersons, Shivakumar said that he was grateful to Mysuru lawyers for all the valuable support that they extended to him during his troubled times. Thanking the Mysuru Bar Association for standing by him, Shivakumar said that he was sorry for coming late to express gratitude. Stating that he knew who made the allegations against him, he said that he would not say anything about it now, but will disclose all the conspiracies at the right moment.

Claiming that he is keenly observing the statements being made by leaders from all political parties in the run-up to the by-polls, he said that he would not like to comment on them now and right now he was only praying for the well-being of the State. 

Regretting that of late politicians are getting little respect, Shivakumar underlined the need for a selfless debate on issues concerning the State.

Replying to a query on his not-so-enthusiastic campaign for the bypolls, Shivakumar merely said that he was going to Hunsur now to campaign for Congress candidate H.P. Manjunath. Former MLAs Vasu and H.P. Manjunath, former MP R. Dhruvanarayan, Hanur MLA R. Narendra, Mysuru Bar Association President S. Anand Kumar and other office-bearers were present.

    I can’t believe an obscenely corrupt money launderer gets an overwhelming welcome at a bar association! That is not too flattering to the advocates. So sad to learn the state of the erstwhile Royal Mysooru….
