New Delhi: A farmer in Karnataka reached a showroom on Friday to buy a Bolero pick-up truck was humiliated by the salesman who smirked that he could hardly afford a car. The car is worth ₹ 10 lakh, the salesman said, and “you probably don’t even have ₹ 10 in your pocket”. He dismissed Kempegowda because of his appearance, the farmer and his friends allege.

The videos of the incident that took place at a Mahindra showroom in Karnataka’s Tumakuru on Friday, have been widely shared and even marked on Twitter to Anand Mahindra. The farmer, Kempegowda had intended to buy a Bolero pick-up when the salesman rudely asked him to leave after making him realise he cannot purchase the truck.

The farmer took up the challenge and came back with the cash in an hour, a full Bollywood story. The salesman apologised.

The argument in the showroom heated up and Kempegowda challenged the salesman to arrange the delivery of an SUV the same day if he brought the money within an hour.

The farmer came back with cash, which took the sales executive by surprise, predictably, as it was probably tough to make instant delivery as the waitlist is usually long. It would not take less than four days to deliver his car.

Kempegowda and his friends demanded an apology and more heated words were exchanged, until the police came in and ended the fight. The sales executive finally apologised to Kempegowda. “I don’t want to buy a car from your showroom,” the farmer said, walking off with his 10 lakh rupees.
