A video of Karnataka Congress leaders badmouthing DK Shivakumar at a press conference with a mic on is being widely circulated on the internet. In the video, former Lok Sabha MP VS Ugrappa and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee media coordinator MA Salim were talking about DK Shivakumar and they even talked about a scandal.
In the video, Ugrappa and Sali were heard talking about a scandal that involved DK Shivakumar and that allegedly has to do with him and his close associates accepting bribes.
Salim said in the clip that it was six to eight per cent before then it became 10 to 12 per cent. It must be all DK’s adjustment. Salim further said that Mulgund (aide of DK) made around Rs 50-100 crore from this and just imagine if Mulgund made this, how much DK must-have.
Later, in the video, VS Ugrappa and Salim can be heard saying that DK Shivakumar is of no use to the party. Ugrappa also said that they worked hard to make Shivakumar the president but he ended up hurting them and the party.
Sali then says that Shivakumar stutters while talking, but he doesn’t have any idea that is it because of low BP or if he is a drunkard.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time that DK Shivakumar found himself in a controversy because of the actions of party leaders. Earlier, the Karnataka Congress chief was caught on a camera while slapping a party worker who tried to put his hand on his shoulder, and later the video went viral on the internet.
