As soon as the most hated virus gatecrashed into our lives, its by product facemasks became as essential as our keys and wallet as we stepped out of our spaces. 

While scientists and doctors have screamed their heads off about the necessity of covering our nose and mouth, some Indian politicians have failed to grasp the significance of appropriately wearing one. 

Below are some instances where the law makers are spotted casually breaking the protocol. 

1. Swami Yatishwaranand, Uttarakhand Minister had his face mask hanging on his toe. 

2. Uddhav Thackkeray, Chief Minister of Maharashtra had his mask dragged so low that his nose and mouth were exposed.
