about the video
Members of the Musahar community have claimed that Gorakhpur officials distributed soaps and perfumes in slums and asked them to clean themselves and their houses before the visit of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath to their locality. Musahars belong to a socially marginalised community which is said to feed on rodents under extreme poverty conditions. The members were also reportedly given bath by a local BJP leader who claimed the exercise was a part of an ongoing cleanliness campaign. (ANI)
