Shivakumar pointed out that Channapatna has yet to host a single KDP (Karnataka Development Programme) meeting, highlighting gaps in developmental initiatives like housing schemes for the underprivileged.

"It is up to the people and the party to decide who should contest." I will respect and adhere to their decision," he affirmed, underscoring his commitment to securing the government's stability for the next five years.

Responding to statements from former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy regarding the focus of the DK brothers on Channapatna, Shivakumar redirected attention to broader state-wide development goals. "My vision encompasses the entirety of Karnataka. I am focused on the welfare and progress of all its people," he asserted, aiming to consolidate his leadership role with an inclusive approach.

Shivakumar also addressed remarks made by Kumaraswamy regarding familial dynamics, stating, "Let him speak. My priorities lie in serving the people and advancing developmental agendas."
