Mysuru: Senior Congress leader and former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah landed himself at the heart of a major controversy while interacting with a woman complainant. In a video of the Mysuru incident which has now gone viral, the Congress CLP leader is seen trying to angrily wrest the mic from the woman's hand, and ends up tugging at her dupatta instead.
Have a look at this video which has now gone viral:
The complainant tried to tell Siddaramaiah about the lack of development work in the constituency, but the former chief minister got impatient and rose to lean and pull the mic from her hand. The Congress leader ended up tugging at her dupatta instead, evoking sharp criticism from various quarters.
Ironically, for Siddaramaiah the incident came on the heels of his moralistic tweet taking a dig at Union Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde
on public decency.
