Kodagu: Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, today, lost her cool at a press conference in Karnataka. Sitharaman blasted Karnataka minister Sa Ra Mahesh during the press conference.

Sitharaman got upset when she was asked to wrap up the press conference due to lack of time. She said that she was following the "minute-to-minute" programme that was given to her.

"I am following a minute-to-minute programme, minister. If officials are important, my parivaar (family) is also important... Central minister follows the minister in-charge here. Unbelievable," she said.

Sitharaman also rebuked when she was told that the conversation was getting recorded. "Let it get recorded," she said.
