Bengaluru: Congress leader D K Shivakumar arrived in Bengaluru city earlier today after he was granted bail by the Delhi High court in the alleged money laundering case. He was welcomed at the Kempegowda International Airport by a large crowd of supporters who garlanded him and took him in a procession to the KPCC office.
Addressing the reporters during a press conference here, DKShi said that he would continue to fight for justice.
"There is no question of getting weak or surrendering. I will fight for justice. If I have done anything wrong, let them hang me. Let God and the law punish me," he said, as per a report by ANI.
It can be recalled that only three days ago, DKShi was granted conditional bail by the Delhi HC, which was challenged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Supreme Court on Friday, October 25. He was released from the Tihar Jail on October 23.
"I want to make one thing very clear, if I have done anything wrong in my election affidavit... an enquiry is on in the matter. Everything is in the public domain," ANI quoted the former Karnataka state minister as saying.
Speaking about his ordeal, DKShi said that he was confused as to why something like this happened to him and also expressed his astonishment at the amount of support he received from the people following his arrest. He added that is now worried about how to repay those who supported him.
"People from across the country stood by me and came to meet me. I don't think I will ever be able to repay them," he said.
Senior Congress leaders including Sonia Gandhi, Ahmed Patel and Anand Sharma visited him while he was in prison.
