Upendra Tiwari, a member of Yogi Adityanath's new cabinet, was livid over the filth in the section of the Vidhan Sabha or state legislature where his office is located.
As stunned officials watched, he got busy.
Yogi Adityanath, the 44-year-old Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, led his ministers in a pledge taken on Monday to clean up their neighbourhoods; they have been asked to commit 100 hours every year to the cause.
Yesterday, the Chief Minister also banned all forms of tobacco from the government headquarters after spotting gutka and paan stains on the floors and walls.
