Outrage as Indian politician demands to be carried through ANKLE DEEP water while inspecting floods that have killed hundreds

A TOP Indian politician has been mercilessly mocked on Twitter – after he was carried through ankle deep water to inspect the devastation caused by deadly floods which have killed HUNDREDS.

Shivraj Singh Chouhan, chief minister of Madhya Pradesh state in India, was shown wearing crisp white trousers and white shoes and being carried aloft through the water in a field, trailed by his entourage.

The smiling image of the politician with his arms wrapped around two officers has even made newspaper front pages in the country which has recently been hit by monsoon rains that have claimed hundreds of lives.

While many comments have been light-hearted others slammed the minister claiming he was abusing his position – even comparing him to the treatment of British officials during colonial times.
