Party to intensify protests at taluks tomorrow

Mysuru, Sept.4 (RK&DM)- Accusing the BJP of vindictive politics, hundreds of Congress workers belonging to Youth Congress, City Congress, District Congress and Mahila Congress staged a demonstration at Gandhi Square this morning, in protest against the arrest of party MLA D.K. Shivakumar (DKS).

Addressing the protestors, CLP leader and former Chief Minister Siddharamaiah alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah were misusing Central agencies  such as ED, CBI and I-T to target Congress leaders.

Alleging that Modi and Shah had targeted Shivakumar purely for political reasons, Siddharamaiah said that following directions from the KPCC, the Congress will hold demonstrations at all taluk centres across the State tomorrow, to press for the immediate release of DKS.

Siddharamaiah also accused Modi and Shah of trying to create a ‘fear psychosis’ among Congress leaders by arresting party leaders such as P. Chidambaram and Shivakumar. Questioning the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) motive behind the arrest of Shivakumar, Siddu said the arrest of DKS was totally uncalled for when he (DKS) had co-operated with the investigation.

Claiming that he (Siddu) himself being an advocate very much knew about the arrest process, Siddharamaiah wondered why the ED arrested Shivakumar without a warrant. Former Minister C.M. Ibrahim, who also addressed the protestors, lashed out at the BJP Governments at the Centre and the State.

    what does sidda and congress mean, they will continue corruption, loot all tax payers money,
    deny any facilities to karnataka citizens, and use goodas and rowdies to block roads and burn buses?

    Instead of Demonstration and destroying the public property for a looter, please expose and explain the public how a public servant can make so much money ? The BJP govt should charge all these damages cost from these protestors, and DKS looted money. Who are protesting for DKS are all his Chamchas, surely their leaders might have recived huge amount for creating such destructions. In my opinion its absoluetly correct that he’s arressted and should get life time.
