Nonetheless, Chitrangi SDM Asvanram Chiravan has given clarification over the incident that he suffered injuries a few days back and had problem in bending so one of his staff members helped him in tying shoelace.

"I suffered knee injuries on December 30 last year and since then I have been suffering a lot of problems while walking and sitting and my staff used to help me. On the day of Pran Pratishtha, January 22, a religious program was going on at Hanuman temple in Chitrangi. During this, I took off my shoes with the help of my leg and after the program I wore the shoes but my lace was not tied," Chiravan said. Uttar Pradesh: School Teacher in Hathras Dismissed for Not Responding to ‘Ram Ram’ Greeting by Class 11 Student.
