A video posted by a Muslim leader named Nazarullah Sheikh from Tipu Nagar expressing his distress over the ‘silence’ of veteran Congress leader and former chief minister Siddaramaiah and KPCC president D K Shivakumar over the Savarkar v/s Tipu Sultan flex row in the city has gone viral.
Nazarullah shared the video on Facebook on Wednesday, August 17 night, he alleges Siddaramaiah by saying, ”There are a lot of so-called leaders in the Congress party. When Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are in trouble, you people protest.”
“You’ll also protest when Youth Congress president Srinivas is in trouble. But have no time to protest when it comes to arresting their own corporator’s husband. Where are the leaders? Are we only for votes?” the Islamist says further.
“We are really upset about the functioning of the Congress party. Think twice before you campaign the next time for votes in Tipu Nagar” he warned. Tipu Nagar is known as one of the biggest localities in Shivamogga town.
