- Chief Minister had warned an SP following protest by BJP workers
- CM was attending an event in Mandya when he warned the SP in front of hundreds of people
- This act was criticised by media and people
- In a clarification, today the CM said that he was concerned about the protesters running towards his car
CM Siddaramaiah, speaking at Shivamogga told that he warned the SP as some BJP workers were exhibiting black flags when his car was passing and told that one of the protesters was trying to come in the way of the moving car. What would have been the result if he was hit by the car, he said.
As a person in the government is it not right to be concerned about people. What would have happened if the man who was trying to run into the car was injured, he said.
The earlier reports had said that the chief minister was angry to see the people protesting against him and had termed him arrogant CM.
