The protesters raised concerns over wages, unemployment and other issues to the CM. The angry protesters raised slogans against HDK which made him lose his cool. "When you have problems you come to me but when it is time to vote you vote for Modi," an angry Kumaraswamy told the protestors.
HDK also threatened to lathi charge the villagers for questioning him. He believes that the village stay programme will help the Janata Dal (Secular) have a better future by paving its way to the villagers' hearts.
