DK Shivakumar, the President of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), has left for Delhi alone on May 6th, after postponing his trip due to health issues. Shivakumar stated that he had been instructed by the party’s general secretary to travel alone and added that he was in good health.

Shivakumar, who was originally scheduled to travel to Delhi on May 3rd, is one of the top contenders for the post of Chief Minister of Karnataka. The decision on the next Chief Minister will be made by the Congress high command, including the national president Kharge, after a single-line resolution was passed by Karnataka Congress empowering them to make the decision.

Speaking to reporters outside his residence, Shivakumar said that he had the support of all 135 MLAs and did not want to divide anyone. “Whether they like me or not, I am a responsible man. I will not backstab and I will not blackmail,” he added.

Meanwhile, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who is also in the race for the post of Chief Minister, has reportedly garnered the support of over 100 MLAs. In an interview with India Today, Siddaramaiah stated that a secret ballot was conducted among the MLAs, and he had emerged as the preferred candidate.

Siddaramaiah, who traveled to Delhi on May 5th, met with the Congress leadership and is reportedly closer to being chosen as the next Chief Minister. However, the final decision rests with the high command.
