Rajasthan politician has landed himself in a big controversy after his photo of urinating near his party poster went viral. Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Bhartiya Janata Party started the ‘Swachch Bharat Campaign’ which aims to make states open defecation and urination free.
Defending himself, Shambhu Singh Khetasar, the chairman of Rajasthan State Seeds Corporation, said urinating in the open was ‘an age-old tradition’ but denied urinating near the poster of Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
“The photo of me urinating against a wall is not near a campaign poster,” Mr Khatesar told news agency ANI. He also said that while open defecation spreads diseases, open urination is not a problem till it is done in a secluded area.
“There was no urinal nearby for kilometres at a stretch and I was busy working since morning,” Mr Khatesar said.
