Copy URL

Amid Karnataka political crisis, while speaking to ANI, senior Congress leader and Karnataka Irrigation Minister, DK Shivakumar said, “Mumbai is known for its hospitality. I had booked a room there and was on an official visit to meet my friends and colleagues but Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and officials misused their authority. It is a matter of shame.” On Wednesday, a hotel in Mumbai where Congress-JD(S) rebel MLAs are staying, cancelled DK Shivakumar booking citing ‘some emergency’. Police has invoked Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) and imposed Section 144 around the hotel. DK Shivakumar arrived in Mumbai on Wednesday morning to make a last ditch attempt to pacify the rebel MLAs stationed at a luxury hotel. Meanwhile, Section 144 (prohibits assembly of more than four people in an area) imposed at Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru from July 11-July 14.
