The video has been posted by Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala where the Haryana CM is seen standing with an axe during a rally.
In the video, Khattar is seen telling the public how it can be used to destroy enemies, with an axe in his hand. Just then, a BJP leader standing behind CM Khattar places a crown on his head. The angry CM turns with the axe in his hand and threatens to chop off the BJP leader’s head. “What are you doing? I will chop off your head. Move aside.”
Sharing the video, Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted, “Anger and ego are harmful to health. Why does Khattar sir get angry? Surjewala asks. If this is what he says to his leader, wonder what will he do with the public.”
