After the video shot at a convention of the cobbler community in Koppal in north Karnataka yesterday went viral, the state's Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya said he apologised to the man who faced his wrath.
The video aired by TV channels showed an angry Anjaneya inquiring about an officer who was supposed to be present at the convention but was not. He then instructs people around him to call the officer.
The minister is later seen inquiring about the cook. He then uses a swear word for the cook before demanding that tea or coffee be served immediately.
Anjaneya later said he used the cuss word in a "fit of anger" and that he apologised to the cook.
"He is our boy. I said sorry and sorted out the matter. the matter ends there," he told reporters.
