Mysuru: Member of Parliament and BJP leader Pratap Simha on Saturday dropped a new bombshell on the issue of Congress leaders’ whispers about KPCC president D.K. Shivakumar. He levelled serious allegations that the viral conversation was a “systematic conspiracy” by Siddaramaiah.
Speaking to reporters, Pratap Simha made the explosive remarks that the conversation between Saleem and Ugrappa in full view of the media is a plot to end Shivakumar’s political career.
“Saleem got a position in the party because of Shivakumar. Shivakumar was instrumental in making Ugrappa a member of parliament. Despite this, he has been targetted and Siddaramaiah is the chief reason for this,” he alleged.
A few days ago, a video went viral on social media in which former Lok Sabha member V S Ugrappa and media coordinator M A Saleem attributed D.K. Shivakumar to an alleged scam when he was a Minister.

“Congress high-command has invited Siddaramaiah to join national politics. Unwilling to serve at the national level, Siddaramaiah has plotted against DK Shivakumar,” Simha said.
“Siddaramaiah is working like an eliminator. He has planned it (the conversation) to avoid going to Delhi. His actions will completely destroy the congress and indirectly benefit BJP,” he opined.
