A video that went viral recently showed Janardan Mishra, a BJP member of Parliament from Madhya Pradesh, cleaning a toilet with his bare hands at a school.
According to The Indian Express, during one of his visits to a school in Khajuha village of Rewa district, the MP was informed that students were unable to use the toilet because it was clogged. Subsequently, he got down to clearing the soil from the toilet despite protests from a man in the background who insisted that he would get it cleaned.
