The Election Commission of India banned rallies over the spread of COVID-19. However, this has led candidates resort to door-to-door visits. A video that has been widely-circulated on social media from Kanpur shows a leader's campaign taking an amusing turn as he interrupts a voter who was taking a bath.
Surendra Maithani, the BJP MLA from Kanpur, has posted several photos showing his interaction with people, some applying tilak on his forehead, as he campaigns in his assembly seat. But, there is a video that has gone viral where Maithani talks to a man as he bathes; the MLA reportedly barged in and started asking questions.
"Is everything fine? Your house been successfully constructed? Have you got a ration card," the MLA asks the man who is in the middle of his bath.
"Yes, Yes," the man replies, soaping himself.

The BJP MLA has even posted the picture on his Instagram page.
"I went to a beneficiary's home and congratulated him on the successful completion of the home under the housing scheme. I requested him to press lotus (BJP symbol) and elect me as MLA," the MLA wrote.
