Bharatiya Janata Party’s MP from Rewa, Janardhan Misra, has set the bar for his colleagues when it comes to leading cleanliness drives in their constituencies.
During a recent visit to a school in Rewa’s Khajuha Village, Misra learnt that the students haven’t been able to use the school’s toilet as it was clogged. The MP immediately rolled up his sleeves, sat on his haunches and began clearing the blockage with his bare hands.
In a video released by Misra on Twitter, the Rewa MP can be seen removing the soil that had clogged the Indian-style toilet. A man can be heard in the background asking the minister to stop and that he would ensure that the toilet in unclogged. The minister, however, refuses and uses his hand to remove chunks of soil and then uses a stick to penetrate through it. He later pours water to check if the blockage has cleared.

In another video posted on his profile, the BJP leader can be seen shaking hands with students and inspecting their nails. He also clipped the nails of a few students and advised them to keep their nails clean. In another video, the lawmaker can be seen giving a bath to a child. After realising that the kids at the government school had not taken a bath, Misra even scrubbed the feet of a student. He also requested the parents to ensure that the children are given a bath daily.
Misra, a keen promoter of Prime Minister Modi’s pet project ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan’, was earlier spotted cleaning the streets of Rewa. In a video message on his Twitter profile, Misra asked people to take an oath to promote cleanliness.
