A video of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Janardan Mishra cleaning a school toilet in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa's Khajuha Village went viral on various social media.
During his inspection run in the state-run school in Nayi Garhi, the mnister cleaned the toilet after it had clogged and been out of use due to accumulation of soil. The MP visited the school to promote Clean India Mission.
