A picture of Rajasthan state Health Minister, Kalicharan Saraf, urinating on a wall in Jaipur while his vehicle waits for him on the side has gone viral on the Internet. According to IANS, he has however responded to the news by shrugging it off as “not a big issue”. While this news came to the fore as the Municipal Corporation of the state is working on bringing the city to the top on the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan chart, it is also illegal to urinate on the roads and violation of the law can result in the payment of a fine of Rs 200.

When the media reached out to the minister for his comment on the issue, he declined from responding and instead said he would rather not talk about it is as it is not an important issue. When IANS tried to reach Saraf on his phone, it was switched off.

In her response, Congress’ Rajasthan unit Vice President Archana Sharma told IANS that at a time when so much money is being spent on Swachh Bharat, such leaders are giving a wrong message by doing such “shameful” deeds. Additionally, she said that the minister should not have flouted rules like this in his own constituency.

A picture of the minister in the act was tweeted out by Danish Abrar, the secretary and coordinator of the IT cell of Rajasthan Congress Committee.

Sharma also said that this is not the first time that Saraf has urinated publicly. He did so during Dholpur by-polls when they had gone there together but she could not click a picture of the act back then because of “poll stress at that time”.

    Its really shame that a Heath Minister is urinating in Public. Ministers should live as role model for the society, if they themselves are doing like this, he should be punished and not fit to sit in that seat. These people are the shame for the society and India.

        Some times it happen that one may not be able to hold it further. Either one should passed in the car or outside the car. Out side the car seems to be a better choice. But the ministers or such vvips needs be careful and should travel after they empty their bladder.

            I t is a natural call and one can not wait till reach home/office.It seems he was passing though high way.Everyone has gone with this problem many times.Being Minister he is being made a target.Does Reporter knows his health Condition. We need many toilets on road side, at least to visit toilet within 10-15 minutes when one feels to go for urination.Let Govt and public take it seriously without making fun of it while passing any remarks.

              I agree with you. Having said that, politicians are being targeted because they are responsible for this state of affairs in the country. The whole nation is suffering because of their mis-management since independence.
