The CM got angry and shouted at the workers saying they had voted for Narendra Modi and shouldn't go to him seeking to get their work done. He further asked them to ask PM Modi to do their work.

"You voted for Narendra Modi and want me to get your works done? This is what you get for voting Modi. Go and ask him. Learn to respect people," Kumaraswamy told the YTPS employees. The CM's vehicle then left the place.
