Will abide by party decision on Rajya Sabha polls: DK Shivakumar
While speaking to ANI in Bengaluru on June 04, the president of Karnataka Congress, DK Shivakumar said, "Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has come up with an unholy alliance. Congress party is not speaking to any BJP MLAs. Either I will speak or our CLP leader will speak on this matter. Our CLP leader has spoken on the issue so, I don't need to comment." "I will abide by the party decision on Rajya Sabha polls. The party will look at national perspective as we have one seat which we can win on our own and still we will have some surplus vote," he added. "Party high command has not asked me anything over Rajya Sabha polls," Shivakumar further stated.
