Bengaluru Rural Congress MP D K Suresh has launched a scathing attack on the Centre claiming that the the Centre is diverting all funds from south to North. He also threatened that if the Centre continues to ignore the woes of South Indians, soon they would demand a separate country for South Indians. Suresh is the brother of Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar, who is also the Karnataka Congress president.

DK Suresh said, "If the grant discrimination is not correct, give a separate nation. If the discrimination in grants continues like this, it is inevitable that South Indians should raise their voice for a separate nation. We are not getting the share of our state. They are giving our money to North India. The center is doing injustice to the state in all matters. The Hindi side is putting pressure on us. There is always injustice in the allocation of grants to the state".

Reacting on the budget Suresh said that it is an election budget and nothing new in it. “This is the election budget. In the interim budget, only names have been changed. They have introduced some Sanskrit names and introduced schemes,” Suresh said.

Their agenda is to divide people with North-South Conflict and appeasement Politics," Chandrasekhar wrote on X.
