An Indian ruling party politician has been left red-faced after a video of him urinating in public went viral on World Toilet Day, despite government efforts to stop people relieving themselves in the open.

Shinde - a member of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party - defended his actions with an excuse familiar to many, effectively saying: "When you've got to go, you've got to go."
"I have been traveling continuously for the last one month reviewing the Jalyukta Shivar scheme," he told the Press Trust of India (PTI), referring to drought-prone Maharashtra's water conservation program.
"Continuous traveling in high temperatures and dust made me ill. I was suffering from fever and when I couldn't find a toilet while traveling, I had to relieve myself in the open."
