Siddaramaiah says people with Kumkum Tika scare him, questions their work efficiency

The former Karnataka CM was addressing the inauguration ceremony of a lake rejuvenation project in Badami where he had made the statement.

Former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah has stoked another controversy. Addressing an inaugural event for a lake rejuvenation project in Badami, he was caught on video saying that people with a Kumkum tika on their forehead scare him. He also questioned their work ethics and efficiency.

As per a report in Times Now, Siddaramaiah said at the event, “I am afraid of any person who wears kumkum on their forehead. You are wearing that Kumkum, will you do the work properly. I am afraid of people who wear that Kumkum. You have to perform well and finish work on time. I don’t know, I have this fear of people who apply such long Tikas on their forehead.”

The inauguration event of the project in Badami reportedly had begun with a priest performing a Puja. Siddaramaiah had targeted one of the contractors present who was sporting a Tika on his forehead.

In the same event, he reportedly also ignored a request from a person who belonged to the ST by saying, “All STs have voted for the BJP. What have you done for us?” He then proceeded to walk away without hearing what he had to say.

Siddaramaiah has often been in controversy for all the wrong reasons. Not long ago, he was caught on camera pulling the Dupatta of a female party worker at an event. Though it was later clarified that he was trying to snatch the mic and her Dupatta got pulled along with it. His menacing and arrogant behavior towards the woman was widely criticised.
