Even as his ongoing tour of drought-hit districts of North Karnataka is being criticised as nothing more than a photo-op by opposition parties, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had to face some embarrassment on Monday.

Officials sprinkled two tankers of precious water on a muddy road which Siddaramaiah and his convoy had to take to avoid dust from rising.

This comes at a time the state is suffering from severe drought and water shortage. The roads were washed and cleaned to prevent dust from rising when the CM's convoy passes by. Bagalkot DC has ordered an inquiry and has rubbished the reports saying that the water was used to clean a statue and not the road.
