BJP will make all its efforts to itch DK
Before the Lok Sabha elections, if Mr. DK Shiva Kumar named as the Chief Minister Candidate of the state, the BJP would sharpen its political weapons to tackle him and prove its existence in Karnataka.
With the alleged disproportionate cases that were filed against Mr. DK Shiva Kumar, the BJP would activate “Its Under Controlled Forces” to minimize DK and his ruling in the state. Reportedly, BJP may go to any extent to prevent the Congress Government in the state and defame it at any cost by creating uncertainty in the state administration.
