Union Minister Pratap Sarangi Washes Feet Of Elders During BJP Membership Drive
Bhubaneswar: Union Minister of State Pratap Sarangi is known for his simple lifestyle. He garnered praise and limelight when he took oath as a member of Modi 2.0 cabinet for his austere way of living.
This has manifested in several instances. In a recent example, Sarangi was seen washing the feet of a retired OAS officer Ramakanta Mohanty and a former college principal Shyam Sundar Dash during BJP’s membership drive in Badashi.
Sarangi expressed that both were elder to him and as per Indian tradition he sought their blessings by washing their feet.
It is notable to mention here that Prime Minister Modi too washed the feet of sanitation workers during his recent visit to Prayagraj. Sarangi is often referred to as Odisha’s Modi.
