No question of going to elections in the name of a person: Support Cong. for the interest of State – DKS


Mysuru, July 19, 2022 ( “We will face the forthcoming assembly elections under mass leadership. We won’t face the polls in the name of a person. The Congress party believes in mass leadership. Please support the Congress party for the interest of the State,” appealed KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar.
Addressing a press meet today in Mysuru, D.K. Shivakumar expressed his view that the journalism ethics of the journos in Mysuru was the best as he has observed in his 40 years of political life. “Mysuru news draws the attention of the leaders and the people at the national level. The local media in Mysuru is strong,” he said.
“The lives of people is in deep trouble after the BJP came to power. We resigned voluntarily after we lost the byelections. After that I became the KPCC president and Siddaramaiah was made the leader of the opposition in the assembly. The high command has made me the president along with 5 other executive presidents team,” he explained.
“The kith of persons who lost their lives due to COVID has still not received the compensation amount. You can remember the oxygen shortage incident in Chamarajanagara. Me and Siddaramaiah visited the spot immediately. We made efforts to ensure that the kith of the people who lost their lives received the compensation amount. After that we visited every family and gave Rs. 1 lakh to the families each. But the State Govt. has still not given the compensation amount. We also fought against the government against the shortage of beds, medicine, etc. during the pandemic,” he added.
