KPCC president D K Shivakumar arrives in Mangaluru, visits bishop, senior Congress leaders


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru

Mangaluru, Jul 31: For the first time after he assumed charge as the new president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) D K Shivakumar arrived in the district on Friday July 31.

On his arrival at the airport here from Bengaluru, Shivakumar was accorded a warm welcome by former minister U T Khader, former MLA Abhay Chandra Jain, MLC Harish Kumar, former MLC Ivan D'Souza, youth Congress district president Mithun Rai, and others at the airport here.

Speaking to scribes at the airport, he said, “This is my first visit to Dakshina Kannada after assuming the post of president of KPCC. This is a vibrant district. This place is known for education and health care.”

On a query about BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel’s statement that 15 Congress MLAs are in touch with him, Shivakumar said, “I wish all the best. Let them take over the whole country. I thought all the 224 are in touch with him. I do not know why he is bluffing saying only 15 MLAs. Congress party is with its cadres. We will build the party with the help of our cadres all over the country.”

Shivakumar then visited the Bishop House to meet Bishop of Mangalore diocese Dr Peter Paul Saldanha. The bishop accorded a warm welcome to Shivakumar and felicitated him.

The bishop said, "Congress has been doing tremendous work over the years and I wish they continue to do the same. I bless you all for your future endeavours. Keep doing good works for the betterment of the people.

Shivakumar said, “Since I took charge, I was not able to travel due to coronavirus lockdown. Now I have come to Mangaluru to seek blessings of Oscar Fernandes and Janardhana Poojary and other senior leaders who encouraged me to join politics.”

He then met former union minister Oscar Fernandes, and enquired him about his health condition.

Shivakumar will then meet the office bearers of the Auto Rickshaw Drivers Association at Kankanady and receive a memorandum. He will hold press conference at the district Congress office. Following the press conference, he will hold consultations with 60 party representatives who have been serving as Covid warriors.

In the afternoon, the KPCC president will go to the residence of Qazi Bekal Ustad at Mudipu. After being blessed by him, he will visit former union minister Janardhana Poojary, at his house at Bantwal. His next visit will be to Dharmasthala where he will meet Dharmadhikari Dr D Veerendra Heggade and seek his blessings. Shivakumar will stay at Dharmasthala for the night and return to Bengaluru through the airport here on Saturday morning.

    DK Shiva Kumar is both able and tactful leader to lead Congress in Karnataka.
    He has the power of people behind him and his Chanakya neeti will help him contain his opponents from within and outside.

    D K Shivakumar in a money laundering case, Court has granted bail.

    It directed however that he be released on bail on furnishing a bond of Rs 25 lakh and two sureties of like amount.

    The other conditions laid down by the high court while granting him the relief include not leaving the country with the concerned trial court's permission

    Same person is now Cong State President - who is on bail for corruption case / money laundering.

    Just read the full article. He is visiting all the three religion leaders . Later in the day Daiji will cover his visits of other two religious heads too. Visiting the religious heads doesn't mean that he is begging votes . Congress is a secular party which takes all religions together

    Karnataka Congress definitely has more capable leaders than RaGa...
    Here only seeing I will tell.... Why also I will tell...
    1.DKShi... knows how to mobilize and build cadres. Anyone jailed in Tihar for 52 days would have run leaving the scene. NOT DKSHI. If the same had happened to the Congress Youth Icon it would have been
    Baagh RaGa Bagh....
    2.U. T. K..... As I told yesterday very safe in Ullal. Does not run anywhere looking for a safe constituency like RaGa. Does not treat Minority as a vote bank, works for them. RaGa only wears that TOPI only during election time... Right?
    3.Lobaam... Always talks sense. RaGa always Nonsense.
    Three enough ok?
    Ivan, Mithun and all aa? They have to catch up with RaGa and leave him behind.. OK? Much to do.
    Today this much enough...
    Congress has some ಸ್ಟಫ್ in Karnataka... to challenge top leadership for dure...

    This time I agree with you Mr. Bhandarkar. Congress had good leadership in the past but Rahul Gandhi does not have any mettle for leadership . Seems Congress Mukt Bharat is the vision of motherson duo.Unless there is coup from nexgen congress leaders the party seems to be doomed.
