ED summons DKS: “Sheer madness” by BJP says, Cong


Team Udayavani, Oct 7, 2022, 11:13 AM IST

Randeep Singh Surjewala, AICC General Secretary in-charge of Karnataka, said that the summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to  Karnataka Congress President D.K. Shivakumar is “sheer madness” by the BJP.

“They (BJP) are scared and fearing defeat in the upcoming state Assembly elections,” Surjewala added.

“This is why the state Law Minister J C Madhuswamy had said that the BJP government is not functioning but are somehow managing the government for the next seven to eight months. The secrets of this 40 per cent commission government (BJP government in Karnataka) are revealed by their own party leaders,” he said.

“They (BJP) have served summons to Shivakumar and Congress MP D.K. Suresh to prevent our ‘Bharat Jodo’ rally. Including Shivakumar, Suresh, Opposition leader Siddaramaiah, Opposition leader in the Legislative Council B.K. Hariprasad or Congress workers will not be scared by this development,” Surjewala added.

“By filing false cases, they (BJP) can’t pressurise Shivakumar. They can’t reduce the spirit of Congress workers,” he alleged.

“Befitting response would be given in the people’s court. The BJP is shaken by the popular support the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is getting and they have taken to this tactic of issuing summons to Shivakumar and Suresh,” Surjewala added.

He said that Congress Chairperson Sonia Gandhi had participated in a ‘padayatra’ for more than 10 km and encouraged party workers and boosted their confidence.

“The ruling BJP government is scared by this padayatra and after this day, it will be more scared. To stop the rally, BJP has attacked Rahul Gandhi’s staff and journalists.”

Shivakumar said that ED officers have asked him to appear before them by 10.30 a.m on Friday.

“I have discussed the matter with party leaders, and I have been suggested to appear for the inquiry. We are lawmakers and due respect has to be given to the law. This padayatra will be carried out by the common man. Myself and my brother would leave for New Delhi on Thursday and appear before ED on Friday,” the Karnataka Congress President added.

Opposition leader Siddaramaiah alleged that the BJP government is doing nothing about providing reservation to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in Karnataka.

Calling BJP as the party which is against the oppressed sections of society, the former Chief Minister demanded the state government to present the report submitted by Justice Nagamohan Das Committee in the state Assembly.
