CM Siddaramaiah has said he is not used to wearing silk, while refusing a gift from the Minister for Animal Husbandry, Fisheries and Horticulture A. Manju. Just one in many testimonies of his common man, down to earth persona.
When presented the gift, the CM enquired about the gift and sternly rejected it. Mr. Manju then murmured in the ears of CM to say, “Sir, it is just a silk kurta.” The CM immediately responded saying he wouldn’t wear it as he wasn’t ‘used to’ wearing silk.
This is a fitting rebuff to the opposition, which had earlier created ruckus over the CM’s watch, which he had received as a gift from a close friend.
