Sharing a video of the pandemonium at the meeting on microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter), the Karnataka Congress said, "BJP's Tejasvi Surya has once again escaped from the crowd through the 'Emergency Exit Door'. Arrogance of Tejasvi Surya, who attacks and abuses voters during elections, has crossed the limit. The time has come for voters to teach him a lesson".

Meanwhile, Tejasvi Surya's office has issued a clarification alleging that a "few hooligans" sent by Congress created a ruckus in the meeting.

"The Congress sent a few hooligans to the meeting to create a ruckus. One of them shared a video to incite chaos during the meeting. The person in the video isn't even a depositor, but a Congress worker who came to the meeting to cause trouble. Some even made video calls to Congress local leader Shankar Guha to share meeting details and receive further instructions on how to escalate the chaos," Surya's office said in a statement.
