A day after footage of a Samajwadi Party leader weeping at the foot of a Mahatma Gandhi statue in Uttar Pradesh's Sambhal district provoked claims of "overacting" on social media, the politician hit back today by claiming that he has done more to maintain such structures than the ruling BJP can ever be credited for.
In a video shared widely on social media, Firoz Khan and another party leader could be seen crying inconsolably at the foot of a Gandhi statue erected at Fawara Chowk in Chandausi town. He could be heard calling out "Bapu, Bapu" while wiping his face with a handkerchief as other party workers at the spot looked on with largely sombre expressions.
Firoz Khan criticised those who ridiculed him in his emotional moment. "I cleaned idols of Bapu on his birth anniversary, but they are dubbing it as drama. We will not allow such discrimination," he said, adding that the centre's Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan will not become a success until it receives everybody's support.
