about the video

Chhattisgarh minister Kawasi Lakhma had a unique response to a child’s question on how to become a big politician.

In the video, the state excise minister is seen sitting next to schoolchildren as he talks to someone out of the frame. He is heard saying he was once asked by a child how had he become a big leader.

“Bada neta banna ho to collector, SP ka collar pakdo (If you want to become a big politician, grab the collars of the collector and the SP),” Lakhma said was his reply to the child.

The minister, who represents Konta in the state assembly, later said his “words were twisted”.
