I want to be a slab stone on the footsteps of Vidhan Soudha: D K Shivakumar


Bengaluru, Oct 24 (IANS): Launching a scathing attack on his political rivals, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D.K. Shivakumar said on Friday that he was not a 'Bande Kallu' (the rock) but a 'Chappadi Kallu' (slab stone) that is placed on the footsteps of the Vidhana Soudha.

The carefully drafted speech was delivered to his community (Vokkaliga) people to highlight his ambition to become the next Chief Minister of the state.

Speaking at the Vokkaliga community leaders' convention at R.R. Nagar constituency, where bypolls will be held on November 3, Shivakuamr, who belongs to the same community, said that his opponents often say that they have a dynamite to break 'Bande Kallu'.

"I am happy that they have such dynamite and can use it to break 'Bande Kallu' (me). But I would like to remind them that by using dynamite, one can break or crush 'Bande Kallu'. After making such an attempt, the broken stones can be used to hit the rivals, or can be used for carving a deity or even a stone slab that covers the footsteps. Among these, I wish to be a stone slab that will be placed on the footsteps of the Vidhan Soudha," he said.

It is worth noting that Shivakumar is often called by his nickname 'Bande Kallu' as he represents the Kanakapura constituency, which is famous for its rich source of granite stone. He rose to prominence in state politics after his family members got into the stone quarrying business.

This name became very popular after he withstood a series of raids by the central agencies. Even his own supporters in the party started calling him 'Bande Kallu'.

But of late, the BJP is often using his nick name to ridicule him on social media. Although he has never shied away from being called 'Bande Kallu', but this time he has cautiously chose to term himself as 'Chappadi Kallu'.

    I see DKS appearing in news channels every now and then making some statements. His associates too have started the campaign for him around the state. Despite being a Cong supporter I say that fielding a tainted DKS as the face of Congress for the election is playing into the hands of BJP. I hope good sense prevails.

    Today the Corrruption is seen in this manner. For Vokkaligaas Corruption of DKS is ok. For Lingayats Corrruption of BSY if Ok. behind the scenes BSY & DKS & Kuswamy are friends for their convenience. For Ku swamy DKS is a friend as long he helps him be the King. Kuswamy and DKS are both fighting for the Vokkaliga pie. Ku swamy wants the rise of Congress at the cost of BJP but not to the extent Congress can form the govt on their own.

    The manner in which you are conducting yourself, you are only fit to be a tombstone. And since you are a Congress man it is best you forget that dream.

    CAA protest was meant to create chaos in the country after the massive failure of protests against removal of Art.370 and 3ple talaq. People of India have no reason to protest against CAA which is solely meant for persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries. Shrewd lions don’t mess with cunning wolves.

    If he wants to be a slab of VS first he has to leave this world. After all he is dealing in slabs only so his thinking is also on same line. Or he meant slab is of stages of curruption by which he amassed that much wealth?
