Police officer suspended for administering oath of cleanliness while chewing paan masala

Apart from launching campaign to clean Uttar Pradesh of illegal slaughterhouses, illegal buses, and eve-teasers, the new Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has also announced cleanliness campaign in literal sense, especially in the government offices where he asked officials to keep the premises clean and had banned paan-gutkha-tobacco products in government offices and establishments.


As part of the same campaign, government and police officers were administered oath of cleanliness, where they were asked to pledge 100 hours per year to contribute towards cleanliness. To push the campaign further, a state minister Upendra Tiwari had picked up broom himself and cleaned his office.

However, in Lucknow, a police officer took this lightly. Nagesh Mishra, a police inspector Madiaon police station in the state capital, was not only found chewing paan masala, but he was chewing it while administering oath of cleanliness to policemen.

If this was not bad enough, Mishra was not wearing the uniform while administering the oath. Mishra is reported to have been found careless even in a case of sexual exploitation against a local politician Ayyub Khan.

After his photo of administering oath of cleanliness in civil clothes while chewing paan masala was published by the local media, the Chief Minister’s Office is reported to have taken note and the state DIG investigated the issue.

Nagesh Mishra has now been suspended and sent to police line for disciplinary action.
