Bengaluru: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister D.K. Shivakumar stated on Saturday that he is heading to Telangana in the backdrop of election results. “I will carry out the task assigned by the party,” he said.

Speaking to reporters at his residence in Bengaluru, Shivakumar made the statement when asked whether he is heading to Telangana in the backdrop of the announcement of results to handle the situation in case of a fractured verdict.

When asked about Congress MLAs being contacted by other parties and does the party fears the development, Shivakumar stated that no MLA from the party will join other political parties.

“We are not bothered about it. Our candidates are being contacted by other political parties. All our candidates, whoever is approached by them have passed on the information about who had contacted them and told us about the attempt being made to pull them. We are also very cautious,” he stated.

“I have a meeting with the public in my constituency today. I am going there to address their grievances. I have to be away for 10 days to attend a winter session in Belagavi in north Karnataka. In between, I am going to Telangana,” he stated.

“The leaders from the neighboring states had worked in our state election. Our leaders have also worked in elections there. Hence, we will have our responsibilities during the elections of the neighboring state,” Shivakumar explained.

The results of the assembly polls of Telangana state will be announced on December 3. The elections were held on November 30. The exit polls have given an edge to the Congress party and a fractured mandate is also predicted.

We have to work as per the party directives if it is needed.”

The statements had stirred a debate at the national level as Shivakumar had handled crises earlier for the Congress party.
