**Malkangiri:** Manas Madkami, MLA from Malkangiri caught the headlines for the wrong reason as he was seen carried by some supporters to avoid a muddy stretch and keep his sparklingly white shoes clean and dry.
Interestingly, he had gone there to review the welfare projects being taken up in four panchayats of Motu area.
It can be clearly seen in the visual that the politician wearing crisp white trousers and white shoes was carried aloft by two of his supporters waded through ankle deep muddy water, trailed by his entourage.
He is being widely mocked after visuals showing his followers carrying him showcased the feudal attitude of the politician.
The MLA later clarified off camera that it was the overwhelming affection of his supporters which prompted them to act in such manner without him asking for it.
