New Delhi(web team)Sharing gardening tips, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday said that he waters the plants at his Delhi bungalow, with his own urine that he collects in a 50-litre can.
Speaking at an event in Nagpur on Sunday, Gadkari said that urine is a “free homemade fertiliser” that could help people grow bigger plants.
However, before beginning his anecdote, Gadkari said, "I feel a little awkward but I will tell you about it."
He said, "I have done an experiment. I collected my urine in a 50-litre can. I have a big government bungalow in Delhi, which used to be of Madam Sonia Gandhi. There is one acre farm in that bungalow. I called the gardener and asked him to water some plants with this, later these plants grew one-and-a-half times bigger than other plants."
Gadkari also advised the gathering to store the urine in a can and use it on the farm, as it has urea and nitrogen, it will see the result.
However, Gadkari's comment did not go too well on Social media.
