Former Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday (4 September) was seen slapping an aide and then pushing him around after addressing the media outside the Mysuru airport.
In the video shared by ANI, Siddaramaiah can be heard reprimanding the aide and then giving him a slap on the cheek and manhandling him.
Incidentally, this is not the only time Siddaramaiah has been caught having public outbursts. Back in January, Siddaramaiah was seen outraging a woman’s modesty during a Congress event.
In a fit of rage, the former CM, who is surrounded by his followers, was seen lunging towards the woman in an attempt to snatch the mic she was holding. In the ensuing fracas, the dupatta also came off with the mic.
