DATIA (Madhya Pradesh): Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar on Saturday said that several cases have been filed against Congress party workers unfairly and added that the party will change the future of Madhya Pradesh politics.

Speaking to reporters in Datia, Shivakumar said, “All my party cadres are telling me that a lot of cases have been filed against party workers. This is unfair. I just told them to be bold enough and face this time. We will bounce back under former Chief Minister of MP, Kamal Nath, and all of us are working unitedly and we will bring change in the future of Madhya Pradesh politics”.

The Congress leader arrived in Gwalior on Saturday afternoon and visited the Baglamukhi temple, also knows as Pitambara Peeth, at Datia which is about 70 km from Gwalior. Shivakumar also offered prayers at the Peetambara Peeth and reached Indore in the evening.

Early on Sunday morning, he will participate in ‘bhasma aarti’ at the Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain and offer prayers at Kalbhairava temple before returning to Bengaluru for the launch of the ‘Shakti’ free bus travel scheme for women by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

On May 29, Congress general secretary K C Venugopal, after attending a meeting to review the preparations for the upcoming Madhya Pradesh elections, said that the party will resoundingly win 150 seats in the next state Assembly elections. “After our brilliant performance in Karnataka, we will also win resoundingly with 150 seats in MP”, he said.

Also, after the review meeting, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi exuded confidence for the Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh and said that the party will win 150 seats there. Rahul Gandhi said, “We had a very detailed meeting right now. Our internal assessment says that since we got 136 seats in Karnataka, we are now going to get 150 seats in Madhya Pradesh. What we did in Karnataka, we will repeat in MP”.

In the 2018 Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Congress emerged as the single largest party with 114 seats and BJP got 109 seats. However, in 2020, the Congress government lost the majority followed by the resignations of some MLAs. After this, BJP formed the government in the state and Shivraj Singh Chouhan was reinstated as the Chief Minister. (ANI)
