He was in the city to attend some party meetings and address a press conference, but BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra ended up wading though knee-deep water after heavy rains lashed the country's financial capital -- resulting in a viral picture on social media.
A photograph of Patra, holding his shoes to save them from rain waters, got circulated and shared multiple times on Twitter, WhatsApp and Facebook among various platforms. In the photo, he was seen along with Maharashtra BJP spokesperson Keshav Upadhye, both holding umbrellas.
Patra had reached the city BJP unit office in Dadar for scheduled meetings, which were to be followed up by a press conference at 2.30 pm, a party functionary said.
"There was a media-related party meeting, which he attended. The photograph was snapped at around 1 pm in Dadar area, before the scheduled media briefing, which was called off due to rains," a party source said.
"Held a meeting of the Media Department organised by @BJP4Maharashtra in Mumbai today!" Patra tweeted after the meeting.
Hours later, Patra was seen participating in the evening news debates on various TV channels.
