Dharma vs. Adharma this elections, says D K Shivakumar

Energy Minister and state publicity committee in-charge D K Shivakumar said that the present assembly elections held in the state are definitely the fight between the truth and untruth, and Dharma and Adharma.

Speaking to reporters after offering prayers to Lord Krishna at the Sri Krishna temple here on Wednesday, the minister said that both the national parties are placed to defend their respective ideologies as the Congress is inclined towards Dharma and the BJP towards Adharma.

Expressing confidence over winning more than 132 seats, the minister added that the voters would always support truth and genuine concern. Therefore, it is obvious that the party will have an easy victory, which would ensure the formation of a Congress government for another full term, he said.

He said that he is not interested to know whether anyone will come to the temple or not. It is between the Lord and the devotee.

“I believe in him and I am a devotee. I would not like to know about others and their level of devotion towards Lord Krishna.”

He added that Lord Krishna is not only a God but also one of the greatest politicians, who played various roles, including that of the driver of a chariot.

He also declined to offer details about his prayers and said that it was private and would remain between him and Lord Krishna.

He added that whether it is Chief Minister Siddaramaiah or Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it would be their personal concern whether to visit the temple or not.

He said that the Congress-led state government has strengthened all religious institutions, including the Muzrai department. It was an inclusive government.

He added that the government had no intention to hand over the Krishna temple to the Muzrai department. Sadly, unnecessary chaos was created. Henceforth also, the temple would run the same way it has since ages.

Although the chief minister is less inclined towards visiting the temple, he is not the kind of person who interferes and creates unnecessary problems, he said.

He also added that he is not interested in what is going on internally between the JD(S) and the BJP.

He is only keen to know the outcome when it is announced in public.

He said that let the BJP and the JD(S) share hundred and one opinions and discuss various issues within themselves. But he was only interested in the final result.

Let Modi praise Deve Gowda and let Amith Shah also do the same, but the Congress is not worried about such trivial issues. It is only interested in the result.

He added that Deve Gowda has already given his opinion regarding the BJP.
