Rajasthan minister Kalicharan Saraf allegedly urinating on the roadside.

Jaipur: While money is being spent on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan like water, the photos of a cabinet minister urinating in public have gone viral on social media and embarrassed the Rajasthan government, to the extent that the Congress leaders in the state are demanding action. Rajasthan medical and health minister Kalicharan Saraf was reportedly caught defecating on the roadside. Someone clicked the photos and uploaded them on social media. People on Facebook and Twitter are now having a field day, while the minister has not commented even on their authenticity. It was yet to be confirmed if the photos are genuine and the person being shown urinating in the public is minister Kalicharan Saraf. It is being claimed that the photo was clicked when the minister was defecating on the roadside at Jhalana Bypass in Jawahar Nagar on Tuesday. The photo shows him urinating, while his official car is parked nearby. His personal assistant is also standing near the car with his back to the minister. While talking to media persons outside the state assembly, deputy chief whip of the Congress in the assembly Govind Singh Dotasara said that action should be taken against the minister. He said that the JMC employees are manhandling people caught urinating in the public, but it would be now interesting to see what action the civic body will take against Kaliharan Saraf.
