Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman took Kodagu district in-charge minister Sa Ra Mahesh to task and questioned him, "Do I have to dance to your tunes?" Minister Sitharaman expressed her anger during the meeting with deputy commissioners in Kodagu, Karnataka. Sources said that she was supposed to visit the relief camp in Kushalnagar Mythri Hall, but she decided to go to Brahmin relief centre and held talks, and this was not listed in her places of visit. This is said to have triggered minister Sa Ra Mahesh to start prompting Sitharaman about her visits in Kodagu, that led to an outburst making Nirmala Sitharaman ask minister Mahesh if she has to act according to his instructions.
