A picture of a patient mopping the floor in a hospital ward has surfaced on the internet. The catch here is that the patient is a minister in Mizoram.

R Lalzirliana, Mizoram’s power, and electricity minister said no to VIP culture and is now earning applauds for leading by example.

Lalzirliana was seen cleaning the floors with a mop at Zoram Medical College (ZMC) hospital, where he is currently admitted after testing positive for COVID-19.

Reports state that the minister, his wife, and their son were in home isolation initially. On May 12, the family was shifted to the state’s lone dedicated COVID-19 hospital when Lalzirliana showed a sudden drop in oxygen level..

The picture of him went viral online, the minister informed that his intention wasn’t to embarrass the hospital staff.

He had called for a sweeper to clean the ward as it was “messy”. As the sweeper couldn’t respond to his call, he decided to do it himself.

“Sweeping, mopping the floors, or performing household chores are no new jobs to me. I used to do it at home and other places when it was required to do so,” the minister said.

Below is how internet reacted:
