DK Shivakumar gets ED notice amid Bharat Jodo Yatra, Congress lashes out

Bangalore: Karnataka Congress president DK Shivakumar on Thursday (September 15) said that he has received a fresh summons from the Central Investigation Agency Enforcement Directorate (ED) to appear before it. Shivakumar further said that he is ready to cooperate with the ED, but the timing of the summons is coming in the way of discharging his constitutional and political duties. Congress leader Shivakumar said the ED notice came in the middle of the party's 'Bharat Jodo Yatra'. The yatra is scheduled to enter Karnataka in a few days, he said. Along with this, the assembly session is also going on in Karnataka.  

Shivakumar tweeted, "Between Bharat Jodo Yatra and Assembly session, ED has issued summons to me to appear again. I am ready to cooperate, but the timing of this summons and the manner in which I have been tortured is coming in the way of discharging my constitutional and political duties.'' The 3,570-km-long 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' is being taken out under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi. The yatra began on September 7 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. The yatra entered Kerala on the evening of September 10. The yatra will enter Karnataka on October 1.

Earlier this week, the Karnataka Congress launched a campaign titled '40 per cent government, BJP means corruption' to protest the alleged corruption rampant in the southern state. Former CM and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Siddaramaiah has said that CM Basavaraj Bommai knows that his cabinet ministers are completely involved in corrupt activities and looting. Later, Shivakumar released a campaign song on '40 per cent commission government'.
