Karnataka: DK Shivakumar, Siddaramaiah Call On Kharge

New Delhi: Amid the tussle over the Chief Minister post, Karnataka Congress president DK Shivakumar, who is one of the front runner for the coveted post, met party's national president Mallikarjun Kharge here on Tuesday evening. 


Shivakumar, who arrived in the national capital this morning from Bengaluru, reached Kharge's residence a little after 5 pm and held deliberations over the post of chief minister of Karnataka. He left after a 30-minute meeting and did not speak to the media.


Soon after Shivakumar left, Siddaramaiah arrived at Kharge's residence at 10, Rajaji Marg after 6 pm, and the two leaders held discussions on the top post.

We have built this party: Shivakumar

Earlier, Shivakumar before leaving for Kharge's residence after he arrived in the national capital, told reporters, "I have to meet all the party leaders. First, I will meet the Congress president."


He said, "A section of media is reporting that I will resign. The party is like mother to me. We have built this party. My high command is there. My party is there. Our MLAs are 135."

The Congress high command is in a tight spot over the choice of new Karnataka Chief Minister, and is holding a series of deliberations at the residence of the party's national president Mallikarjun Kharge here.

In the recently concluded Karnataka polls, the Congress won 135 Assembly seats out of 224 constituencies.
