Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, it appears, has better conveyed the message of cleanliness to his cabinet colleagues. A day after the newly-elected CM took some tough decisions on cleanliness, UP minister Upendra Tewari was on Thursday seen cleaning his office in the state legislature with a broom.
The pictures and videos showing Tewari cleaning his office have gone viral on social media. The minister can be seen with a broom and a mop in the pictures, sweeping the floor of his office and the corridor that leads to it in the Vidhan Bhawan, which houses the state legislature.
Tiwari, is the Minister of State (Independent charge) for Environment, Water Supply, Land Development and Water Resources and Forest. The video also shows the staff and officials there looking on as the minister sweeps the office, cleaning the corridor.

A stickler for cleanliness, Adityanath had administered a sanitation pledge to officials a day after he took over as the UP CM and asked them to ensure that the pledge is effectively implemented on the lines of Swachh Bharat Mission of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Chief Minister yesterday banned the use of pan and tobacco products in schools, colleges, hospitals and other government buldings, livid at the sight of betel juice stained walls of the building that houses his office.
