(Irish Times) An Indian state health minister has been pictured urinating on a wall amid a nationwide drive to end public defecation and promote cleanliness and hygiene.
Kali Charan Saraf, the health minister for Rajasthan state, was pictured relieving himself on a wall in the state capital Jaipur in an image tweeted by a staffer from the opposition Congress party.
The picture went viral and caused embarrassment for Mr Safar and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Ending public defecation and urination are key priorities of the “Clean India” campaign, a flagship policy for Indian prime minister Narendra Modi.
