In a shocking incident Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar was caught on camera issuing death threat to his aide. The video of the Haryana CM that has gone viral was tweeted by the official page of Haryana Congress party on Wednesday. The video was captured during the Jan Ashirwad rally of the Haryana CM Khattar. He is seen raising an axe as a symbol when his aide tries to crown him. Khattar is seen turning back and issuing a death threat to the aide, as he folds his hands. Khattar says: " Will chop your head." (Gala kat dunga teri.)
Blatantly defending his action, Khattar on Wednesday said that he issued the threat because he was angry. "We took 5 years to end this gold-silver culture. Today if someone, specially my party workers tie silver crown on my head, I will get angry and I cannot tolerate it. That is why I issued a threat, My aide did not feel bad. "(Humne sone chandi ki parampara ko khatam kiya hai agar koi mera karyakarta aisa karega to mujhe gusaa aana zaruri hai hum)

खट्टर साहेब को ग़ुस्सा क्यों आता है?

"गर्दन काट दूंगा तेरी"

Speaking to Republic TV, Congress leader Deepender Singh Hooda said: "Its really unfortunate. Words used were open threat. Completely unacceptable as constitutional post. Habitual offender. women of Kashmir, Women themselves are responsible for crime against them. He is arrogance of power. I condemn it. Across party line any one who holds constitutional post they cannot behave like this. Yesterday one of his aide compared Hooda Sir with wild animal. People need to be careful the kind of word they use. This can go out with IPC defamation, not only inappropriate but illegal also. He will get away with it since he is a CM."
