Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Wednesday lost his cool at protesters at a thermal power station, where workers were demonstrating in front of his bus and shouted slogans at him. “Should I order police to lathi charge? You vote for Narendra Modi and expect me to solve your problem...You don’t deserve any respect,” this is what Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy said after losing his cool at the protesters.
Kumaraswamy was visiting Manvi taluk when he faced with protests by the workers of Yermarus Thermal Power Station. In a video shared by ANI, Kumaraswamy could be seen shouting at the protesters and asking them to move out of the way of his bus and stop shouting slogans.
