BMC official mistakenly drinks sanitiser instead of water, video goes viral

A senior BMC official erroneously drank sanitiser instead of water in Mumbai. The official was presenting the civic body's education budget on Wednesday afternoon. However, the official immediately realised his mistake and spat it out. The official, Ramesh Pawar, is an assistant municipal commissioner with BMC. In video, Pawar is seen sitting on the dais along with other officials to present budget. Pawar then takes a sip of sanitiser from a bottle kept on his desk in the meeting hall. A video of the entire incident also later went viral on social media. BMC officials said Pawar immediately rushed out of the hall and rinsed his mouth. Pawar returned within a few minutes and presented the civic body's education budget having an outlay of Rs 2,945.78 crore for the year 2021-22.
