In a knock to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign, a bureaucrat in Uttar Pradesh was caught urinating on the banks of the Sangam in Allahabad.
The embarrassing video of additional district magistrate O.P. Shrivastava relieving himself at the Triveni Sangam surfaced soon after the Uttar Pradesh government announced that it plans to post videos of offenders on YouTube.
Uttar Pradesh has been striving for an improved image of the state where cleanliness will play a pivotal role. But somehow, this incident where a man supporting a clean Ganga is caught urinating in the same river is being deemed as ‘ironic’.
