Bureaucrats’ Involvement in MP’s ‘Ekatm Yatra’ Leaves Congress Fuming

A woman district collector carrying Adi Shankaracharya’s charanpadukas (wooden sandal) and her counterpart in other district holding the saffron flag as part of ‘Ekatm Yatra’ has left opposition Congress fuming in Madhya Pradesh. Mandla collector Sufia Faruqui’s pictures carrying charanpadukas of Shankaracharya on her head during the ‘Yatra’ had gone viral on Wednesday. Soon after, the BJP state media in-charge Lokendra Parashar shared Faruqui’s pictures on Twitter applauding her gesture as an example of communal harmony. Faruqui carried the sacred footwear for around one km while welcoming the yatra in Mandla on Tuesday. The collector’s act, however, did not go down well with the Congress.
