As Congress leader DK Shivakumar was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa said that he is 'not happy' with the arrest. Shivakumar was arrested on Tuesday evening related to a money laundering case. 

"I pray to God that he should come out from every thing. I have neither hated any one in my life, nor have I wished bad for any one. Law will take its course. If he comes out (of the charges), I will be more happy than anyone. I haven't hated anyone in my life and haven't mean to harm anyone. Justice will have to take its own course," the BJP Karantaka Chief Minister said.  Yediyuruppa's remark is a twist in the Karnataka politics where BJP leaders are reportedly annoyed with the Central leadership. Yediyuruppa  took oath as CM in July this year, after HD Kumaraswamy's alliance government lost majority.
