Bhubaneswar: Union Minister Pratap Sarangi, know for his plain lifestyle, has become the butt of all jokes. Reason: he didn’t have even Rs 10 to give it to a beggar.
The BJP leader was in ADJ-3 and JMFC court here in connection with two cases.
As per people present in the court premises a woman beggar rushes to the Minister’s vehicle for alms.
When she extended her hand, the minister search his pockets for money. But, in vain. An aide sitting in the rear seat fetched a note from the back.
The Minister’s gesture has become a topic of discussion in khatti groups.
