Bengaluru: State minister for medical education and water resources, D K Shivakumar, rushed to New Delhi and held talks with senior advocates amid rumours that enforcement directorate officials are planning to arrest him. He met Supreme Court advocates and Congress leaders, Kapil Sibal, and Abhishek Manu Singhvi.
Shivakumar would be meeting senior party leaders, Ahmed Patel and others, and provide them details of the cases he has been facing. As All India Congress Committee president, Rahul Gandhi, is on pilgrimage to Manasa Sarovar, Shivakumar will not be able to meet him.
Shivakumar said he will not run away like a thief, and that for money recovered in the houses of his friends, income tax had been paid. Shivakumar's brother and MP, D K Suresh, had stated that an attempt would be made to meet the Prime Minister and bring to his notice the misuse of central investigation agencies by his party leaders. Shivakumar also wants to personally meet the Prime Minister.
