D K Shivakumar Leaves for Delhi
Bengaluru: Amid intense lobbying for the Chief Minister’s post, Karnataka Congress President D K Shivakumar left for Delhi on Tuesday to discuss with the party’s central leadership the issue of government formation in the state.
He and Siddaramaiah, both frontrunners for the Chief Minister’s post, were called by the Congress national leadership to Delhi for discussions. On Monday evening, Shivakumar had initially cancelled his visit to the national capital citing health issues.
Before leaving for Delhi on Tuesday, the Karnataka party unit chief said “the Congress General Secretary has asked him to come alone, and he was going to Delhi alone.”.
