There has been a serious allegation against the state president of the divided Karnataka Congress and this allegation has been made by the people of the party, not by the opposing party.
Karnataka Congress’s media coordinator, Salim, met Karnataka Congress President D.K. Shivakumar has been accused of being involved in corruption and extorting crores of rupees as commission.
What’s in the Viral Video?
On the dais before a press conference, Salim sat next to him with former Congress MP V.S. Whispered in Ugraappa’s ear that ‘D. Of. Shivakumar is a very big collection agent who has collected commission of crores of rupees.
They go on to say,
Shivakumar’s aide Malgund has made Rs 50-100 crore. If this is the condition of Malgund then think D.K. What will happen?

All these things happened between these two leaders and it happened in a very low whispering voice, but there is a video of it and it has gone viral.
In the video, Ugraappa can be heard saying that the party has not been able to make a comeback under the leadership of Shivakumar.
After this video went viral, the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee has suspended Salim from the party for six years and sought an answer from Ugraappa.
On the other hand, Shivakumar has said that there is no factionalism in the party, the party is completely united and everyone is working together.
This factionalism of Karnataka Congress has come to the fore at a time when Shivakumar has said that the alliance of Congress with JDS is over. It is clear from this that both the parties will now contest the elections separately. Elections are to be held in the state in May 2023.
Some time ago the Congress broke its alliance with its ally All India United Democratic Front in Assam. After this, in Bihar too, he has fielded his candidates in front of RJD in the by-elections being held on two seats.
