Viral Video: Panchayat EO Uses Tricolour To Clean Office In Odisha’s Puri!

Puri: The executive officer (EO) of a panchayat in Odisha’s Puri district has been found cleaning office furniture with National Flag. A video on the incident has gone viral in social media.

The video shows Prashant Kumar Swain, executive officer of Simili panchayat under Gop block of the district, picking up a Tricolour made of cotton cloth in an office room. He is also shown using it as a dusting cloth to clean the chairs and tables in the room.
