'Had sort out differences for the sake of forming secular govt , says DK Shivakumar
Congress' DK Shivkumar on Monday said that the Congress party and the Janata Dal (Secular) - had to sort out their differences for the sake of forming a secular government in Karnataka.
Shivakumar said, 'Rahul Gandhi has taken decision that there should be secular govt here. That's what the entire country needs & that's why we have taken this stand (alliance with JDS). I had to swallow all this bitterness, this is my duty'.
When asked whether they will complete full term, DK Shivkumar said,''only time will answer & he doesn't want to answer it now as there are other issues at hand.''
A day after BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa resigned as Karnataka Chief Minister, paving the way for a Congress-JD(S) government, Congress leader D K Shivakumar, has been considered the architect behind the operation to keep the alliance MLAs together. He said that he was a "strong opponent" of the JD(S), but had swallowed some "bitterness" since all opposition parties were uniting against the BJP.
