Congress leader D K Shivakumar, on Monday, March 2, reacted to the news that the core Congress members have a filed a complaint against Opposition leader Siddaramaiah with the party high command.

Addressing the media on Monday, he said, “There is nothing like an ‘insider’ or an ‘outsider’ in the Congress party. In the Congress party, nobody is a brand name. Such statements are created only by the media. Frankly speaking, you cannot believe your own shadow nowadays, because people who served a party for more than four decades have jumped to other parties. Political parties have begun nurturing new ones and neglecting the seniors. When the time comes, everything will come to light.”

Lambasting BJP MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal for his statements against freedom fighter Dr H S Doreswamy, he said, “Everbody knows what the BJP is and what they represent. It is the culture of that party. Is it even possible to change them? Even I was a targeted once, and I filed a case against that individual. That case is still pending before the court.”
