Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy once again became emotional at a public event on Tuesday. He said he goes through pain every day but can't reveal the reason behind the same.

"I promise I will fulfil your expectations. I can't express the pain I am going through every day. I want to express it with you, but cannot. But I need to solve the pain of people of the state. I have the responsibility of running the government smoothly," he said at an event in Channapatna in Karnataka.

This was not the first time when Kumaraswamy had an emotional outburst at a public event.

In May 2018, Kumaraswamy said that he was at mercy of the Congress because JD(S) did not get an absolute majority. A month later in July, the chief minister burst into tears at a public rally stating that he was not happy being in the top post and was swallowing the pain like ‘Vishakantha’ (Lord Shiva), who drank poison.

However, senior Congress leader and former Karnataka chief minister refuted the reports of any rift between JD(S) and Congress. "There is absolutely no threat to the government in Karnataka, there is no problem. They (BJP) are trying desperately but they will not succeed," he said.
