Mumbai: Signalling an end to a day full of high political drama in Mumbai, Karnataka Congress leader and Minister D.K. Shivakumar expressed hope that “all the rebel Congress-Janata Dal (S) MLAs would return home and the state government would survive the crisis” as he was set to be deported to Bengaluru by the Mumbai Police later on Wednesday. After being released from detention after around 3 hours by the Mumbai Police, D.K. Shivakumar said: “It is shameful what the BJP has done to democracy… the government machinery is being misused.” “My friends were calling me to meet, but they were prevented. The police are deporting me to Bengaluru and I don’t want to create any law and order situation here,” he said, indicating that he would return to Bengaluru on Wednesday tonight.
