Kumaraswamy caught on camera abusing Karnataka Congress leader, apologises

Mangalore Today News Network

Bengaluru, Nov 24, 2022: Former chief minister of Karnataka and leader of Janata Dal Secular JD(S) H D Kumaraswamy drew the ire of the Congress after a video of him abusing Congress leader K R Ramesh Kumar went viral.



Kumaraswamy later apologised for using an expletive towards Ramesh Kumar, who served as the 16th Speaker of the Karnataka Legislative Assembly, stating that he had no intention of hurting the Congress leader and that it was unlikely of him to abuse anyone.

In a video shared on Twitter by the Karnataka wing of the Congress, Kumaraswamy can be seen boarding a car in the Srinivaspur assembly constituency, which Kumar represents, and using an expletive for the former Speaker while talking to one of his party workers.


Sharing the video, the Karnataka Congress said, "Politics should not be done on the basis of hate, the words we use, behaviors are the mirror of our personality."


Tagging Kumaraswamy, the Karnataka Congress said, "Your use of words... will not bring glory to you, nor will it save the dignity of politics. Elders have shown that politics can be done with mutual respect."

The JD(S) leader was quick to respond and said, "The word I used for former Speaker Mr. Ramesh Kumar hurt me too. The use of that word is not my trademark, nor is it my personality. I am sorry if this word has hurt Ramesh Kumar or others."

Kumaraswamy said he was sad to see the dilapidated condition of a school in Bangavadi village of Srinivaspur assembly constituency. "I was outraged to hear that the children were taking lessons at a stall for horses opposite the school since the last two to three years," said the former Karnataka chief minister.
Kumaraswamy said that the children’s tears infuriated him and moved him to utter an abuse, which is otherwise unlikely of him. "I have spoken in the spirit of speaking and not to insult anyone," he said.
