Belagavi: The BJP has portrayed Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and me as criminals. Whoever progresses politically, and those who are powerful have been criminalised. About whom they are afraid, they get them booked or trouble them, alleged Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President D. K. Shivakumar.
Speaking to mediapersons at Belagavi Airport, he said a lot of people are in touch to join the Congress Party. There are some who will apply to the party. When the application comes, we will release the district-wise list. Those who believe in Congress ideology should apply,” he said.
“I have not been contacted by Janardhana Reddy regarding joining the Congress. I welcome Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai’s move to investigate the corruption that took place when I was the Power Minister. I haven’t been inactive. What contracts have been given by Power Minister, Water Resources Minister during the BJP regime, I am watching all of these. They have made crores through corrupt means. Belagavi District too has a lot of such examples. I am not doing politics blindly. There have been proposals signed during GIM, and an investment of Rs. 10 Lakh crore has come in. When the time comes, I will answer everything,” he said.
