The Raichur Zilla Panchayat CEO Kurma Rao was recently attacked by the opposition when a video was captured of him being carried by villagers. He was criticised of making wrong use of his power.
While on an inspection about the implementation of the government schemes in the villages of the Raichur District. TV visuals indicate two villagers lifting Rao on their shoulders, and helping him through a slush.
A similar incident happened with Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan last year while he was visiting a flood affected area in MP. Like Chouhan, Kurma Rao also defended himself by saying he was carried by the villagers willingly even though he insisted to go on foot.
