Odissa MLA carried supporters getting dirty. Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MLA Manas Madkami loves his sparkling white shoes so much that he wouldn’t mind being lifted and carried by his supporters to prevent them from getting dirty.This was evident when he allowed a couple of men carry him across a muddy patch during a visit to his home constituency – Malkangiri on Tuesday (July 11). The video of the incident has now gone viral. The act was captured on camera when MLA Madkami and Nabarangpur MP Balabhadra Majhi had visited some panchayats in Motu area in the district to take stock of welfare projects.While Nabarangpur MP crossed the muddy water without the help of supporters, MLA Madkami preferred to be carried by his supporters to keep his shoes and crisp white dress clean and dry. Madkami said that his supporters did it out of love and affection for him.“It was the overwhelming affection of supporters which prompted them to act in such manner. They felt elated while lifting me and crossing the water body,” the MLA said. He said that he had not forced anybody to lift him. Last year, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was mocked for allowing cops to carry him across a water body during a visit to a flood-affected Panna region.
