Soon after the Yediyurappa-led BJP government in Karnataka denied permission for the swearing-in ceremony of D K Shivakumar as the State president — for the third time — the Congress termed the action ‘vendetta politics’ on Tuesday.
“On June 14th, ‘PRATHIJNA DINA’ was to be held at 7,800 locations across Karnataka with 10 lakh+ Congress Karyakartas attending it, with care taken w.r.t safety precautions for COVID & social distancing.
