"It was a dark day for Indian democracy. BJP Govt used police to stop me from meeting my Congress & JD(S) MLAs in Mumbai & detained me.
These sort of intimidation tactics will not deter loyal Congressmen like me. We will continue our fight to uphold democracy in India. Jai Hind." - DK Shivakumar on Twitter.
