BENGALURU: “I am very tough while taking decisions and very emotional when I am pained,” Chief Minister Kumaraswamy said on Tuesday. Speaking to media persons in New Delhi, the CM said “ This is my natural behaviour. I openly cry for the pains of the people. It is a natural process in me. It doesn’t have any “colour’. My conduct is as transparent as my tears.”

Reacting to being emotional at a programme at JD(S) office in Bengaluru recently, the CM said “I  have shared my pain with my people. It is true that I shed tears. It is not necessary to give a different meaning to it”. Kumaraswamy said as Chief Minister he strived hard to waive off farmers loans. “I am taking good initiatives. Despite that people are not encouraging me. However, it is inappropriate to state that I have expressed my pain as I am unable to bear harassment of any party,” the CM added.
