Bengaluru: A day after BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel alleged that Congress leader Siddaramaiah was behind the arrest of former minister DK Shivakumar by the Enforcement Directorate, the former chief minister on Monday said that allegation made against him by Nalin Kumar Kateel is idiotic.
Speaking on the issue Siddaramaih said that the allegation made against him by Nalin Kumar is baseless and idiotic.
He also accused BJP of practising politics of vendetta.
Speaking to reporters in Bagalkote on Sunday, Nalin Kateel said, “Shivakumar’s house was raided by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) when the Congress was at the helm of affairs in Karnataka in 2017. Siddaramaiah was the chief minister of the state then.”
“I think Siddaramaiah did this because he saw DK Shivakumar’s growth, that’s the reason Siddaramaiah might be behind DK Shivakumar’s arrest,” Nalin Kateel said.
