He mentioned the system was greater than any particular person in society. “Let the truth come out,” the deputy chief minister mentioned.
Shivakumar himself has mentioned prior to now that he’ll cooperate with the investigation and it was a possibility for him to show his honesty, he identified. “It is not right to do politics on such a delicate issue. Some people are trying to get mileage by terming it politically motivated. There is no connection between the raids and the by-elections,” he maintained.

Congress leaders have hit out on the BJP governments on the Centre and the state for the CBI searches, questioning its timing forward of November Three bypolls to Sira and R R Nagar Assembly segments.
Party staff are staging protests in entrance of Shivakumar’s residence and numerous locations, towards the CBI search, calling the company as an “agent of BJP.” Medical Education Minister Ok Sudhakar mentioned if the raid was politically motivated, “there are other leaders like Siddaramaiah who had led the government for five years. Why hasn’t he been subjected to CBI raids,” he requested as he accused the Congress of politicising the matter and taking part in the sufferer card.

Also, CBI raids had been carried out on numerous political opponents together with the current Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan Mohan Reddy throughout UPA rule.

Bypoll results will not have any impact on the government and hence one cannot correlate the raid to elections.”
