Amit Singh, leader of opposition in the MP Assembly said, “Shah today got the first hand feel of the hollow development in the state at the Uike’s house, which does not have a toilet.”

Singh further added that Shah was all in praise of Madhya Pradesh chief minister for doing an excellent job in all fields including ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’.

“He might have learnt the ground reality today,” added Singh.

According to people who know Uike told the PTI that the tribal leaders family consists of nine members and all go out to address the nature’s call.

The acquaintance also added that Uike had filed an application to build a toilet with the Bhopal Municipal Corporation a few months back.

Additional municipal commissioer and corporation’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in-charge MP rushed to Uike’s residence to verify if the claims made by Congress leaders.

BJP media-in-charge said, “A toilet will be soon constructed in Uike’s residence soon.”
