“The spraying of chemicals on migrants to sanitise them has raised some questions. Has the World Health Organisation given any direction in this regard? How do you treat the burning sensation caused by the chemicals? What arrangements are there for people to change out of wet clothes? What alternatives are being provided for the food that gets wet due to the spraying?,” Yadav tweeted.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also tagged a news report along with the tweet which showed a group of people sitting on the road being sprayed with a liquid which the article claimed was a chemical. PTI ABN
