Drinking water from Kali Bein

Two days after he drank a glassful of water directly from Kali Bein, a holy rivulet in Sultanpur Lodhi, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was admitted to Delhi’s Indraprastha Apollo Hospital with a stomachache late on Tuesday.


The Punjab CM was invited to Sultanpur Lodhi to participate in the 22nd anniversary of the cleaning of Kali Bein by renowned environmentalist and Rajya Sabha MP Baba Balbir Singh Seechewal. Mann drank the water, which is polluted, without hesitation, said reports.


The water of Kali Bein was polluted with all the sewage and industrial waste flowing into it. Grass and dense weed grew around it.

AAP’s reaction

Meanwhile, AAP leaders have denied Mann had any infection and said he went to the hospital for a routine checkup and was later discharged.



AAP’s Punjab unit has said that the CM had taken up the task of cleaning the holy place. The government announced to clean rivers and drains across the state. “Bhagwant Mann also drank water from the Bein and said that he was blessed to have got this opportunity,” AAP Punjab said in a tweet.

Praising the efforts of Balbir Singh Seechewal for cleaning Kali Bein, the chief minister said that such efforts need to be replicated at a mass level to carry forward the legacy of great gurus.
