‘BJP is scared of Rahul Gandhi’: KPCC president DK Shivakumar
Senior Congress leader and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president DK Shivakumar slammed BJP national president JP Nadda for his comments on Rahul Gandhi. He said that Nadda and his whole party fears Rahul Gandhi as they keep attacking him every day.
Responding to JP Nadda’s attack on Rahul Gandhi during the Vijaya Sankalpa Yatra in Karnataka, DK Shivakumar told ANI, “I think JP Nadda is afraid of Rahul Gandhi. Our leader’s simplicity has created fear among the BJP and that is the reason why they attack him every day directly and indirectly.”
DK Shivakumar also alleged that the BJP has made Karnataka the corruption capital of India. “After making Karnataka the corruption capital of India, they are now trying to enter Tamil Nadu. The Congress will win the assembly elections and come to power,” he added.

During his speech in the Karnataka poll campaign on Saturday, JP Nadda said, “Congress means corruption and commission. They had looted Karnataka when in power and they are looking for another chance. But I am sure that the people of Karnataka are smart, and they know whom to elect in an upcoming election. Not just Karnataka, but the whole country is fed up with Congress’ family politics. Rahul Gandhi goes to foreign land and questions India’s democracy. With all your votes, you people must answer him how strong democracy is in our country.”
The assembly elections in Karnataka are likely to be held in April or May and all the parties have already started their election campaigns. The Congress party is expected to put out their first list of candidates in next few days.
