A video featuring Bihar women worshiping a dustbin kept in front of a temple has gone viral on social media, leading to a Congress-versus-BJP debate.
The video hit the internet on October 28 and was widely circulated on social media. The details of the incident featured in this footage are not available.
If we are to go by the buzz, the dustbin was recently kept in front of a temple in Bihar as a part of the Swach Bharat initiative.
The Kangaroo-shaped dustbin was apparently a big surprise for the women in this area, who mistook to it to be a deity and started worshiping it by pouring water and Kumkum on its head.
A guy recorded this scene on his cellphone and uploaded it to Twitter. The amusing video has since caught the attention of many on social media.
Some Twitterati dubbed the dustbin worship a superstition and felt the women needed to be taught about its usage.
Others opined that this was the best video to show the 60-year misrule of the Congress and the apparent illiteracy and poverty it resulted in. They thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Swach Bharat initiative.
Here are some comments about the dustbin worship that are doing rounds on Twitter:
