Maddur (Karnataka) – An incident of State President of Karnataka DK Shivkumar insulting the ascetics coming there to bless the Congressmen on the Congress’s foundation day by denying their blessings, took place in the foundation programme.

The Chief Guest, former Deputy Chief Minister G Parmeshwar was addressing the gathering assembled on this occasion. Front seats in the auditorium were occupied by DK Shivkumar and other dignitaries. Seeing the programme, some ascetics came there and told DK Shivkumar that they had come to bless the Congressmen; but not paying any heed to what they were telling, DK Shivkumar said by folding his hands (Namaskar), ‘We do not want your blessings.’ The ascetics left the premises.
