“I had promised Sonia Gandhi that I will deliver Karnataka to Congress. I cannot forget when Ms. Gandhi came to meet me. The Gandhi family had reposed faith in me,” he said.
“I credit party workers and leaders, including Siddaramaiah for the victory. It was a collective work of the party,” Mr. Shivakumar said even as he broke down.
He also thanked the voters for having reposed faith in the Congress by giving them the majority.
“I don’t want to talk now. I am headed to Ramnagar to collect my victory certificate. I had sent my agent to collect the certificate, but our party workers want me to go there personally.”
