Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, visited flood-affected families in Satna on Saturday evening and continued with his tour to Rewa and Panna on Sunday.

On Sunday, Chouhan took to Twitter to share photographs of himself visiting the flood-hit families.

Photos of Chouhan braving floodwaters to visit those in distress were meant to project him as a hardworking CM who takes the trouble to assess a situation at the ground level. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, what triggered the social media avalanche was a photo, shared by ANI, that showed two security personnel carrying Chouhan across the ankle-deep water.

According to an NDTV report, government officials said that Chouhan had to opt for this unusual mode of transport because they could not risk the CM getting hurt or being bitten by snakes.

Meanwhile, the Hindustan Times reported that another government officer had claimed that Chouhan was carried because he had hit his foot on a hard object in the mud and was having trouble walking.

Naturally, Chouhan received a lot of flak on social media.

Aaaand, he became a never-ending meme.

Never change, Internet.
