Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said that he was “not happy” with arrest of his political rival DK Shivakumar.
The senior Congress leader was arrested last night by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case. The probe agency said that he was not cooperating with the investigation.
Yediyurappa said: “Let me tell you one thing, the arrest of DK Shivakumar did not bring me any happiness. I will pray to God that he will be out soon. I haven’t hated anyone in my life and haven’t mean to harm anyone. Justice will have to take its own course.”
He also said that he would be the “happiest” to receive the news of Shivakumar’s getting out. The Congress, however, has accused the BJP-led centre of practising “vendetta politics” by using the agencies to arrest its leaders.
