- Sivakumar demanded that the footage be deleted
- The incident happened while moving with activists
- The incident took place on Friday in Mandya
All DK Sivakumar, who was walking with the workers, was trying to put his hand on his shoulder. Outraged, Sivakumar shook his hand and slapped him in the face. The incident took place in front of the media.
When it became clear that the footage had been copied, Sivakumar asked for it to be deleted. Sivakumar claims that he reacted in such a manner due to lack of social distance.
BJP leader CT Ravi shared the footage of the incident. Ravi’s critique is that it is clear from the scenes that Sivakumar, an old disciple of Kotwal Ramachandra, a Bengaluru goonda, was dealing with party workers in this way. He also asked who had given Sivakumar the power to commit such atrocities. The response was through tweets.
