Ramanagara: Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D K Shivakumar refused to undergo a COVID test as a medical team along with the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Ramanagar district approached him, and Shivakumar sent the team back.
Shivakumar was seen saying that he wouldn’t undergo the test, claiming that he was fit and fine and had no health-related problems. And they can’t compel him to undergo a test. “The CM, Home Minister, and Health Minister might have health problems. I am an elected representative, one can’t force me and I know the law of this land. They are blackmailing me. They are trying to spoil the Padayatre and are playing politics, “he said to ADC in a viral video.
According to the sources, Shivakumar later asked sorry to the team.
Shivakumar said the government is manipulating COVID-19 case numbers. In order to show high case numbers, they are subjecting people to testing and showing them positive. Just a few days ago, Shivakumar said that there was no Covid and that the BJP had hatched a conspiracy to spoil the Mekedatu Padayatre by wrongly utilizing the Covid situation.
