In a shocking incident of VVIP culture, Amethi District Magistrate Ram Manohar Mishra made a man clean his shoes while inspecting cow shelter in Uttar Pradesh's Amethi.
In the video, a labourer can be seen cleaning his shoes. However, no reaction has yet been given by a Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh against this VVIP culture.
The video of the shocking incident accessed by Republic TV shows the DM walking and inspecting the cow shelter when someone points out that there is dirt on his shoes. Following which another person is called and can be seen bowing down and wiping his shoes. As per sources, the video was taken on Tuesday when the District Magistrate went for inspection.
This is not the first time that VVIP culture has been spotted in the state of Uttar Pradesh. During the Lok Sabha election 2019, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra came under the scanner when her convoy was caught on camera going past the toll gates without stopping and paying the taxes.
In the Lok Sabha election 2019, Smriti Irani won against Rahul Gandhi in a landslide victory.
Republic TV had then accessed the CCTV footage from the toll booth at Ahmedpur, which showed the VVIP arrogance of the Congress party. As many as 20 cars, including Priyanka's one, went through the poll booths without halting and giving the due tax.
Soon after the elections, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath was also questioned about VVIP treatment given to members of his family in Ujjain on June 4. Ratul Puri, an industrialist and the nephew of Kamal Nath, along with his wife were given a VVIP escort for an unofficial visit to the Mahakaleshwar temple where they had offered prayers. The VVIP escort comprised of state administrative officials and police officers. Videos show an unending line of vehicles - resembling the kind of cavalcade that would accompany a Chief Minister - following which much criticism has been directed at the leader for misusing the authority of an elected representative. The escort comprised of six police officials, state administrative officials and an ambulance, all to serve the pleasures of not the leader himself but for his family.
