Kanpur mayor Pramila Pandey threw a file at a government official and asked him to get out of the room during a meeting held on nullah cleaning and other civic issues in the office of the municipal corporation. In a video of the incident, which has gone viral, Pandey can be seen losing her cool and flinging the file at the officer, narrowly missing his face.

According to reports, Pandey scolded the civic official for apparently misleading her over nullah cleaning in the city, and became angry over his lackadaisical attitude towards routine work. The meeting was held on Wednesday (June 12), in which the mayor and other officials were discussing civic issues.

In the video, she can be heard scolding the civic officer in front of others. “Do you think I am a fool?” she shouts at him, as she throws the file at him. The mayor got angry after the officer’s response to her question about files related to drainage cleaning. When the mayor asked the officer to get her the file for May, he reportedly showed her a file for the month of March.

While many social media users criticised the mayor’s behaviour, others said civic works like nullah cleaning were important and must be completed before the monsoon. Unclean and clogged drains can cause major issues during the rainy season.
