Watch: Former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah slaps a party worker in front of the media

In January, Siddaramaiah was seen snatching a woman's Dupatta away from her body when he reacted angrily over the woman's complaint regarding his son's absence from his assembly. Later, it was clarified as unintentional.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah has yet again caused controversy after he got angry and slapped an aide in the presence of media, reports ANI.

According to the reports, senior Congress leader and former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah slapped a man, reportedly an aide of Congress leader for requesting him to speak to someone on a phone call. Siddaramaiah who is on a visit to Mysuru and Kodagu had landed in the Mysuru airport on Wednesday morning.

In the video shared by ANI, as Siddaramaiah walked out of the airport premises after addressing the media, a party worker, Ravi, wearing a white shirt was seen talking to him. A visibly irritated Siddaramaiah slapped him hard on his cheeks and moved ahead.

Reportedly, Ravi, a Congress party worker, was speaking to someone on a mobile phone. Then, Ravi requested Siddaramaiah to speak to that person on his phone which irritated former Karnataka CM. Refusing to speak, he slapped Ravi.

This is not the first time that Siddaramaiah has shown his anger on ordinary citizens. In a despicable instance of outraging a woman’s modesty, former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in January had snatched at the dupatta of a woman, pulling it away from her body, in an attempt to intimidate her. Later, he had clarified that the reaction was unintentional.

At the event in Mysuru, the woman in the video was trying to register a complaint with former CM Siddaramaiah regarding the absence of his son Yathindra, an MLA of Varuna constituency. As the aggrieved lady took the name of his son Yathindra, senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah lost his temper. He had reacted by getting aggressive and berating the woman suggesting that the complaint made it seem as if his son had committed a great crime.

In 2016, former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had slapped a senior government official in Ballari after he had allegedly mistaken the officer for a person from the angry crowd.
