After this Dikeshi hugged Siddaramaiah and wished him well. And the two leaders raised their hands and showed solidarity. After this Siddaramaiah said in his speech that there is no difference between me and DK Shivakumar. He said that his opposition to the celebration of the birthday is just a media creation.

Former AICC president Rahul Gandhi, who had mentioned the same issue in his speech, said that he was happy to see DK and Siddaramaiah hugging each other. And advised to continue with unity.

In this background, the BJP tweeted that this was not a heartfelt hug, rather it was a hug and a show of solidarity as per AICC’s instructions or as a warning.
