Gwalior: In a bid to apologise for the bad condition of a road in Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior, Energy Minister Pradhuman Singh Tomar on Monday washed the feet of a person. Talking to the news agency ANI, the minister said, “I apologised to people for the bad condition of the road & promised to repair the road which was dug for a sewer line work.”
Tomar made headlines in December after he was offered a pair of slippers by Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Tomar tweeted a video where Civil Aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia can be seen offering him a pair of slippers.
