"Opposition leaders are easy victims of power misuse" : HD Kumaraswamy On DK Shivakumar's Grilling
By NDTV 03-Sep-2019
Mr Shivakumar flew to Delhi the next day, asserting that as the son of Kempe Gowda, he was not the kind of man to run and hide.
Questioning went on till late on Friday night, through Saturday and continued on Monday after a break on Sunday. The Monday questioning was a sore point - it was Ganesh Chaturthi - and Mr Shivakumar became emotional while talking to reporters in Delhi about it.
"I have not been able to perform puja for my father. I would celebrate Ganesh Puja with my children, but they did not allow me to do so," he said.

Mr Shivakumar has been getting some sympathy for his situation from Congress and Janata Dal Secular leaders, who feel he is being victimised because he is from the Congress. Former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy of the JDS tweeted.
"Vindictive politics has become the order of the day. Opposition leaders are easy victims of power misuse. In public life, we need to be strong to face baseless allegations and conspiracies. I am sure DK Shivakumar is strong enough to face this vindictive agenda against him."
The Congress and the JDS had formed a coalition government in Karnataka in May 2018 after the assembly elections failed to give any one party a majority. This government lost power in July to the BJP after losing a trust vote.
Congress leaders visited Mr Shivakumar at Karnataka Bhavan in Delhi, where he is staying. Mr Shivakumar's brother, DK Suresh, who is the only Congress MP from Karnataka, came to Delhi with him.
