Why shouldn’t Karnataka get a Dalit chief minister, asks DK Shivakumar | Bengaluru

State Congress chief DK Shivakumar on Tuesday asserted that the Karnataka assembly elections will be held next year and the Congress has made chief ministers from almost all communities, so Dalits can also become chief ministers.

KPCC President DK Shivakumar said, ‘Congress has made almost all the community leaders in the state as Chief Minister, why should a person from Dalit community not be the Chief Minister?

“Congress will win more than 136 seats under collective leadership in next assembly elections. Internal survey also says it will get majority. Veerappa Moily, Gundurao, Bangarappa, Devaraj Arasu, Siddaramaiah are chief ministers. Why? Will a Dalit become CM? He added.

According to him, the state BJP government is the most corrupt government with ‘thick skin’. People are fed up with constant scandals and corruption, Siddaramaiah’s Congress government fulfilled almost all aspects of the election manifesto, BJP fulfilled 40% of its manifesto? asked the Karnataka Congress chief.

He said that Congress will investigate all the scams of BJP after coming to power.

Talking about Siddaramaiah’s birthday celebrations, he said, “Don’t dwell, there are many milestones in a person’s life. Siddaramaiah’s fans are celebrating Siddaramaiah’s 75th birthday. Both me and Rahul Gandhi will participate in the festival. We have no factions, we are Congress faction.”

Meanwhile, state party chief DK Shivakumar, who dismissed reports of a power struggle in the Karnataka Congress, asserted that ‘it is more important for the Congress to come to power than for me to become the Chief Minister’.

“It is more important for the Congress to come to power than for me to become the chief minister. Only if the Congress party comes to power, the chief minister’s position will be given. The high command of the party will decide who should be the chief. KPCC president DK Shivakumar said that I am the party president after the ministerial candidate, SM Krishna from the Okkaliga community, and I have requested the Okkaliga community to stand behind me.

The next Karnataka assembly elections will be held on or before May 2023 to elect all 224 members of the state assembly.
