J C Madhuswamy, memeber of Karnataka Legislative Assembly has come under fire after he was caught on camera verbally abusing a woman. The incident happened in the Kolar district and the video has gone viral on social media. The Minister later apologised after a reprimand from Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa.

The incident was reported on Wednesday (May 20) when the minister had gone to inspect a particular pump house of the KC Valley project in the district when a woman complained to him about certain encroachments on tanks. The video highlights that when the woman asked him to take action against the encroachment, he wagged his finger at her and said, “Aye! Shut your mouth, rascal.” The minister also directed the police to take the woman away from the area.

Meanwhile, Karnataka CM Yediyurappa on Thursday (May 21) objected to the remark made by Madhuswamy and stated that he has warned the minister against using such abusive words for anybody.
