HASSAN: Former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy termed AICC president Sonia Gandhi’s visit to the Siddaganga Mutt to take part in the ‘Guru Vandana’ of seer Shivakumaraswami of being politically motivated.

He told reporters that Sonia had visited Karnataka only to sort out the differences among the senior state leaders and not to address the grievances of the drought-hit villagers. He said that Sonia was making futile efforts to bring the Congress to power in the state in the upcoming Assembly polls.
