Mumbai: Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole landed in a controversy after a video went viral in which an unidentified man - believed to be a party worker - was seen washing his feet.

The incident happened when Patole took darshan of Sant Gajanan Maharaj's palkhi (palanquin) at Wadegaon in Akola district on Monday evening.

Upon returning to his car, a man was seen assisting the feet of Patole, who is a former Speaker of Maharashtra Legislative Assembly and an ex-MP.

The ruling BJP-led Maha Yuti targetted Patole. “Imagine what would happen  if power goes to their hands,” the BJP Maharashtra posted on X. 

Patole said he was deliberately defamed  by showing a video about me in the media, but there is no truth in it. 

“While visiting Akola district the palanquin of Saint Gajanan Maharaj came there….I belong to Warkari sect and when I went to see the palkhi…after this my feet was covered with mud and one of the activists poured water on my feet and I washed my feet with my hands, what is wrong with that,” he said.

"I am a farmer, I am used to mud, whatever has happened has happened in broad daylight. There is nothing to hide but people whose feet are covered in ‘ED activities’ will say anything to cover their own sins,” he said.
