DK Shivakumar Gets IT Summon

DK Shivakumar Gets IT Summon

The income tax department on Wednesday send fourth notice to Congress leader and minister D K Shivakumar in a year-old income tax case. Notices have also been sent to his elderly mother and his brother DK Suresh. Calling the fourth summon from the Economic Offences Court a vendetta, the Congress leader asked why there hasn’t been any probe against his “friends and associates”.

Denying the IT department’s claims that they have seized a diary from a businessman, which revealed that the minister had transferred a huge sum of money to some organisations in Delhi, DK Shivakumar claimed that he too has some diaries and warned that he will “disclose the contents of them” to expose many BJP leaders and other bigwigs in Karnataka.

“It is very shocking. There is no diary. I am not aware of it. There has been no raid on any of my friends or associates. You can write whatever you feel like,” he said, adding that he will not reveal the contents of the diaries yet. “But I will disclose them at the end,” he added.

Claiming that he’s being victimised and being targeted for “daring politics and personal charisma”, Shivakumar said, “They are not able to tolerate my rise in politics and so are torturing me, my family and friends. I know who is doing this and why. I also know how to fight this legally. I am really upset by this.”

Slamming the fourth summon to the minister, the Congress party asked why there has not been any probe against B S Yeddyurappa. “Yeddyurappa has kept his ill-gotten wealth at her house. If the I-T department is not acting under pressure from the BJP, it should raid her house. What is now happening is pure vengeance,” Former BJP MLA Belur Gopalakrishna, who recently joined Congress, said.

His brother and Congress MP from Bengaluru (Rural) DK Suresh accused the BJP of taking a revenge on them for forming a coalition government with the Congress party.
