Contrary to their profile of social welfare, they were rather seen humiliating the children. The officials of the Akhilesh Yadav government were in Shamli on an official visit, when there was a power cut. The children were then given the task to fan them.

Shockingly, several senior officials of the district were present during the event but no one paid heed and felt pity for the children.

A meeting was held at a primary school, where district magistrate, CDO and CMO were also present.

When News Nation reporter tried to contact the officials, they denied to speak anything over the matter. So far, no action has been taken against any official.

Meanwhile, UP Social Welfare Minister, Awadhesh Pratap Singh, has said that he has no information on the matter as he was out for Eid celebrations. He said that he will look into the matter when he returns and denied to provide any statement.

Yogesh Pratap Singh, State Education Minister, said that he has sought information from the district magistrate over the issue. He said that the kids were not the students of the primary school but the locals had deployed them. The officials never asked them to do the job, he added.
