Ray cleans soiled toilets of IPT Directorate

Port Blair
16 Nov 2017

Taking a page from Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi’s favourite ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’, Mr. Bishnu Pada Ray, MP showed a dirty mirror to the officers and biggies of Directorate of Information, Publicity and Tourism here. Like a possessed messiah who wanted to prove his commitment to the Swachh Bharat Mission, he took upon himself, single-handedly to scrub and clean the unhygienic, stinking, pan stained toilets of the IP&T complex, the supposedly welcoming gateway to the tourists visiting the emerald isles.
Exasperated not to find any cleaning liquid, or tools, he was aided by the local media fraternity present there in large numbers, who bought the essential cleaning products for him and went about his mission bewailing the callous attitude of the officers and staff there. Completing his Gandhigiri, he pointed out with bitterness in his voice, that the unhygienic toilets reflect the capability of the officials who take posting here to enjoy life and care two hoots for the development of the islands pointing his metaphorical finger directly at the senior officials of the Directorate.
