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. However, at the time of publication, Firstpost could not independently verify the authenticity of the pictures, or the location and time the pictures were clicked at.

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.

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.

Earlier in June, the National Green Tribunal was moved to act against BJP MP, Priyanka Rawat after she threw a plastic bottle in the river Saryu, a tributary of the Ganga, in presence of a minister in the Yogi Adityanath government.

In a separate incident, several BJP members in Delhi were seen spreading garbage on clean pavements before politicians came and swept them away for photo-ops. Hindustan Times reported that garbage was littered on a streets near India Islamic Cultural Centre on Lodhi Road before then party president of the Delhi unit Satish Upadhyay reached the sport with brooms and cleaned it up again.

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