Indian minister caught urinating in public, mocked on social media

NEW DELHI: Ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Union agriculture minister Radha Mohan Singh was caught on camera urinating in the public on Thursday morning, sparking social media storm.

In a photo that has since gone viral, Singh, a strong supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan campaign, was seen peeing on a wall while his security guards stood close-by.

“Amid tight security, the Union Minister of Agriculture gives the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan a boost as he inaugurates an irrigation project in a drought-affected state,” the text accompanying the images said.

However, Indian Express said it could not independently verify the images.

Several people have reacted to the picture on Twitter and other social networking sites, pointing out that it is not the first time a BJP leader’s actions have made a mockery of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

Swachh Bharat Mission was officially launched on 2 October 2014, and aims at universal sanitation and open defecation eradication by 2019.

Some rather keen observers also pointed out that Singh’s official car still has the red beacon on top, even after a government order against it.
