Jharkhand BJP man washes MP Nishikant Dubey’s feet, drinks same water

September 17, 2018

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Nishikant Dubey has controversially allowed a local party worker to wash his feet and drink the same water while defending himself as well as the incident that took place at a political event in Jharkhand’s Godda district on Sunday. The incident was captured on camera, a video of which went viral on social media.

In the video, a local BJP worker, Pawan Shah, is seen washing the feet of the Godda MP amid claps and loud cheers of ‘Pawan bhai zindabad’. After scrubbing Dubey’s feet, the party worker wiped them and drank the same water he used to wash the feet.


Dubey later shared the pictures on Facebook, saying he would like to reciprocate the gesture for Pawan Shah if given a chance.
When Dubey was slammed on social media, he said the party worker did was a customary practice in Jharkhand and that he did it out of happiness. “If a party worker washes the feet out of happiness, what is amazing in it. Washing the feet of the guests is a customary practice in Jharkhand,” he said, citing the example of Sudama doing the same for Lord Krishna in Mahabharata.

Reacting to this, Pawan Shah — BJP worker who washed Dubey’s feet — said, “This should not be politicised, what crime did I commit if I washed his feet and drank water? It was my sentiment. He is like my elder brother. Will file case against all those slandering me.”


“These kind of act towards politicians are due to lack of personal wisdom as well as political wisdom. Nothing has changed after independence as before independence this kind of act was done for english people and now with politicians ! ” – Editor, Vedic Upasana Peeth
