Karnataka CM News: There is a tussle in the Congress to choose the next CM of Karnataka. Now news is coming that DK Shivakumar is not agreeing. Sources say that he is not ready for the offer made to DK. DK has been offered Deputy CM and 6 ministries. Shivakumar’s supporters told sources that Shivakumar is not ready for anything less than the post of CM.
According to sources, if the Chief Minister’s formula also comes for two-and-a-half years, then Shivkumar needs a firm announcement on that.
