"What kind of message are we giving when DK Shivakumar came to Bengaluru and JDS flags were shown along with Congress flags? What kind of message are we giving when a message was given to stay away from JDS," Siddaramaiah said on Monday while the raising the issue with his supporters.
Former Periyapatna MLA K Venkatesh also supported Siddaramaiah.
