"You voted for Modi go bother him": Kumaraswamy's rant at protesters in a village
Bangalore : Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy lost his cool recently over a bunch of protesters in a village.
“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,” he was quoted saying in a news report.
Members of the Yeramarus Thermal Power Plant workers stopped the KSRTC bus CM Kumaraswamy had boarded, which was on its way to Karegudde village. The protesters gathered to narrate their woes of not getting salaries to the Chief Minister; but instead of getting a sympathetic ear, what they got was a rant from the Chief Minister.

If you cannot listen to the plead of people then who in Karnataka asked you to become the CM ?
Kannadigas anyways didn't vote for you nor did they ask you to be the CM.
Do the state a favor by stepping down. You are fit for nothing pic.twitter.com/jUjlfROAYE
