Axe in hand, Khattar tells supporter: 'Will chop-off your head'

On Wednesday, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar found himself in the middle of a controversy after a video surfaced on social media, showing him losing cool on a BJP worker.

The worker, a former member of the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC), tried to put a silver crown on Khattar's head, making him furious.

Subsequently, the CM said, "Gardan kaat dunga teri."

Reaction

Evidently, the video brought Khattar in the news, and for all the wrong reasons.

Slamming the BJP leader's behavior, Congress' Randeep Singh Surjewala said, "If this is what he says to his leader, wonder what will he do with the public?"

Sardonically, he told Khattar anger and arrogance are bad for health.

Why does Khattar get angry, asked Surjewala

Defense

Cornered, Khattar blamed Congress' culture for outburst

After the row, Khattar defended himself and said that the party worker didn't feel bad at all.

In fact, he put the blame on "Congress' culture" by stating, "If someone, especially my party worker, tries to place a silver crown on my head, I will get angry and not tolerate it. We have ended this culture after coming to power."

Looking back

Interestingly, Khattar has been controversy's favorite child

Interestingly, Khattar has been controversy's favorite child

Khattar is known for stirring up controversies.

Just last month, while commenting on Haryana's sex-ratio, Khattar sparked a massive row by saying that daughters-in-law can be "brought" from Jammu and Kashmir too, now that the border state's special status is gone.

To note, as per 2011 census, Haryana has 879 females per 1,000 males, making its sex-ratio the worst in India.

Meanwhile, BJP is hoping to retain power in Haryana

Meanwhile, Haryana goes to polls in October, and BJP seems prepared. On August 18, Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh flagged off the Jan Ashirwad Yatra. The BJP has also announced "Mission 75" with the hope of winning 75 of the total 90 state assembly seats.

Poll bonanza

With eye on polls, Khattar announced slew of schemes

Separately, Khattar announced various schemes for different sections of the society including entrepreneurs, watchmen, sanitation workers, on Thursday.

He launched insurance schemes for 3.86 lakh registered small and medium traders of Haryana and added that these traders will be insured for up to Rs. 5 lakh.

Further, entrepreneurs will be eligible for compensation between Rs. 5-25 lakh, depending on the turnover.
