A day after UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath emphasised on cleanliness, his cabinet colleague Upendra Tiwari on Thursday picked up a broom to clean his office in the state legislature, pictures of which were shared on social media.

Armed with a broom and a mop, the minister swept the floor of his office and the corridor leading to it in the Vidhan Bhawan in Lucknow, which houses the state legislature.

A stickler for cleanliness, Adityanath had administered a cleanliness pledge to officials a day after he took over as the Uttar Pradesh CM and asked them to ensure that the pledge is effectively implemented on the lines of Swachh Bharat Mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The chief minister on Wednesday banned the use of pan and tobacco products in schools, colleges, hospitals and other government buldings.
