Indian minister under fire for giving uncovered sanitary napkins to girls


PATNA: A minister from the ruling Nitish Kumar government in Bihar has come under fire for reportedly distributing unpacked sanitary napkins to the girls at a health camp.

Minister for arts and culture minister Shiv Chandra Ram came in the firing line of the opposition after he was caught on camera distributing uncovered sanitary napkins to the girls of his state.

The local media has reported the conservative rural girls hesitated in accepting napkins from the minister in the presence of their parents but the latter showed no concerns for the girls as his eyes remained fixed rather on the camera.

Vaishali district magistrate Rachna Patil, however, has clarified the napkins were well “packed up”.

Angry Jan Adhikar Party leaders held a demonstration in front of the minister’s residence in Patna yesterday and sought the resignation of the minister.
