Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat campaign just got a new poster village. A man in Madhya Pradesh’s Sehore district was asked to strip naked and do sit ups when the villagers found him defecating in the open.
According to News18, Sunil Rai was defecating in the open early morning when other villagers spotted him. The Chief Municipal Officer Chandar Singh along with Jawar Nagar Panchayat rebuked Rai for it and asked him to pull down his pants and do sit-ups in public.
According to the locals, Rai under pressure did the sit ups and has not come out of his house ever since.
The villagers also add that the government employees in the district have threatened many of them that if they were to defecate in the open, they would be denied government benefits.
