Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy was met with 'shame, shame' slogans when he was on his way to Karegudda, Manvi Taluk for his 'village stay programme'.
Hundreds of workers from the Yermarus Thermal Power Station, Neeravari Valaya Hangami Karmika Sangha, and Hutti Gold Mines staff and employees have been protesting over their long-pending demands -- wages and other issues.
The protestors blocked Kumaraswamy's convoy in Yermarus. The chief minister left for his second village stay in a government bus -- which was stopped just outside the inspection bungalow in Yermarus.
