What adds to the irony and ridicule of the entire incident is the fact that Shrivastav is wearing seen wearing a 'Clean Ganga' t-shirt while committing this act.
The senior official was at the location, apparently, to discuss arrangements for the upcoming Triveni Mahotsav, which will be held on February 23.

A probe has been ordered into the matter after people expressed outrage on social media.
Dubbing the act as an 'unpardonable offence', Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Laxmikanth Bajpai asked state Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to suspend the official.
So is this the UP government way of telling the NDA Government at the Centre that they don't support the 'Namami Ganga' Mission?
