The chief minister ordered the arrest and hurled abuses at the school Principal after she reportedly 'misbehaved' with him. The video of Rawat publicly insulting the woman teacher has now gone viral.
#Uttarakhand CM @tsrawatbjp loses his cool while hearing a teacher's plea for transfer during BJP's "Janata Darbar". In the video he can be heard ordering the teacher's arrest and suspension.

In the video, an elderly woman is seen sharing her woes while requesting for transfer. Far from showing sympathy towards the woman, Rawat is seen losing his temper and using rude language. “Is ko suspend karo. (Suspend her immediately.)” Uttara Bahuguna (57), principal of a government primary school in Naugaon area of Uttarkashi district, requested for her transfer as she's been posted there for 25 years. "Before the Uttarkashi village, I was posted in a remote area in Uttarkashi district’s Chinyalisaur. My husband used to take care of my two children, but after his death in August last year there is no one to take care of my children. Also, I am too old to work in remote areas," said Bahuguna in an interview with Indian Express. Rawat is facing a lot of flak on social media for losing his cool with Uttarakhand Congress leaders objecting to the Chief Minister’s “rude behaviour, and lack of patience”.
Reminds one of bygone era when the kings used to say " put him behind the bars". A public servant (?) in a democracy shouldn't be behaving with such arrogance. But this is the sad reality in most Asian countries and you may also find many justifying this. — Whistle Blower (@India4everybody) June 29, 2018

Being Public representative he should not use such language whatever be matter shame on you. — Abhishek Sarathe (@AbhiSarathe18) June 28, 2018
Abuse of sheer power, what if no one listens for public grievance, simply he can not just say arrest her, to arrest someone a written complaint is must, did he order expressly? Power has corrupted these netas and BJP will pay the price in 2019. General public watches behaviour — Maverick (@ASR1481) June 29, 2018
How arrogant you are @tsrawatbjp , shame on you to deal with a women teacher. People going suspend with few years then you will be in custody — Mohan (@tgmkrishnan) June 28, 2018
