Former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah's unacceptable behaviour with a Woman sparked a controversy. The Congress Leader lost his cool when a Woman complained to him that she wasn't able to get access to local MLA Yathindra (Siddaramaiah's Son). He not only snatched the mike from the woman but also pulled down her dupatta in the presence of several people. Though the Former CM kept shouting at her to make her silent, The Woman continued to raise questions. Other leaders had to intervene to calm her down.
Siddaramaiah downplayed the indecent act by saying everything happened accidentally and he knew the woman, identified as Jamalar, since the past 15 years.
Speaking to media, Jamalar clarified: 'Siddaramaiah is like my elder brother. He is Mysore Tiger...I won't complain even if he thrashes Me. He helped Me a lot. That incident happened in a heat of the moment. He just told I am talking too much and snatched the mike...that's it. Slamming the table was the mistake I had made and that made him angry. Don't know what tensions he had at that time. I take the blame for making him angry'.
