Shivamogga: With the elections entering the final leg, all contenders and their supporters are pulling all stops to bring the other down and claim the crown.
During the Congress party’s campaign in Shivamogga on May 8, dynamic leader D K Shivakumar trained his sights on BJP MP Pratap Simha.
Addressing a huge gathering at the O T Road Convention Hall, D K Shivakumar accused Pratap Simha of conspiring to create communal tension in Shivamogga to gain votes for the BJP.
“There is no need for us to worry about winning,” he said. “Our candidate K B Prasanna Kumar will win because the BJP’s candidate will be defeated by his own party workers,” he added.
Speaking about the BJP’s alleged tactics to target the Congress party, D K Shivakumar accused the BJP of using I-T raids as a weapon and claimed it had failed in its mission. “You all know what is right and what is wrong. Please do elect Prasanna Kumar once again as your MLA to continue the development as he has done tremendous work so far,” he said.
Incumbent MLA K B Prasanna Kumar also spoke on the occasion and said, “For the last five years there was never any need for curfews. From this, you can imagine how the peace was maintained in the district. Now the BJP is going door to door and asking people to vote for Hindutva. That shows you what their mindset is.”
D K Shivakumar was felicitated on the occasion during which many people joined the Congress party.
