But a bureaucrat in Allahabad is apparently least concerned about the initiative. Additional District Magistrate (ADM) O.P. Srivastava was caught urinating in the Triveni Sangam(confluence of three rivers – Ganga, Yamina and Saraswati) during a meeting to discuss for upcoming Triveni Mahotsav, says a report by ANI, which has gone viral on the social media.

The irony of the shameful act is that Srivastava is seen wearing a ‘Clean Ganga’ t-shirt while relieving himself.
However, Srivastava has denied the allegations by saying that he was just washing his hands.
“It’s a wrong news. I was just washing my hands and adjusting my pants. I was not urinating. I was 15-20 feet away from the river. Like any other Hindu, I also respect ‘Triveni Sangam’ a lot. I would not do such a thing,” Srivastava said to ANI.
