Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar came down heavily on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and compared the party’s rule in India to the British rule and appealed to make it a ‘BJP-free India’ by voting for the Opposition alliance in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

Speaking at a function to mark the ‘Quit India’ movement at the Congress party office in Bengaluru, he said, “Like India fought to throw the British out of the country, we should throw the BJP out of the country. You must make a ‘BJP-free India’ in the upcoming elections.”

He also asked the party workers to work for the people and win the hearts of those who back BJP and Janata Dal Secular (JDS) to win the Lok Sabha polls in 2024 and also the 2028 Karnataka Assembly polls. He also stated that the Congress’ win in Karnataka has instilled confidence among the political parties to take on the BJP by forming a common platform I.N.D.I.A (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance).  

Congress MP defends no-confidence motion 

The statement comes at a time when the Congress initiated the debate on the no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday, which is currently going on. The Opposition bloc was creating a ruckus over the matter of violence in Manipur seeking a discussion on the matter and also a statement by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said the Opposition bloc INDIA was forced to bring the no-confidence motion against the government to break Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “vow of silence” on Manipur. Commencing the debate on the motion in the Lok Sabha, Gogoi alleged that the government spoke about “one India has created two Manipurs — one living in hills and the other in the valley.”

Meanwhile, Amit Shah responded to the motion raised and said, “From day one I was ready for the discussion on the Manipur issue but the Opposition never wanted to. The Opposition doesn’t want me to speak but they can’t silence me. One hundred and thirty crore people have selected us, hence the Opposition will have to listen to us…During the past six years of our government, the need for a curfew never rose.”
