Bhopal: A young man who sought help to set up a barber shop was asked by a Madhya Pradesh minister to demonstrate his skills on stage during a function. The incident took place at Gulaimal in Khandwa district on Thursday.

Forest minister Vijay Shah was attending a function in Khandwa when a local named Rohidas sought his help. During the function, Shah called Rohidas on the stage and asked him to give him a haircut and shave.

The barber, wearing a mask, demonstrated his skills by cutting the minister’s hair and giving him a shave on the dais.

Shah satisfied with the job, Shah paid Rohidas Rs 60,000 on the spot.

The minister said that he wanted to assure people that it is safe to get a haircut from barbers if precautionary measures are taken.

“These people are facing problems because of COVID-19 restrictions and are jobless for the last few months. I got my hair cut on the spot to give confidence to people that it is safe if precautions are taken,” the minister told PTI.

Shah said that the money was paid from the minister’s discretionary fund.

He added that the government would provide loans through banks to the youth who want to start their own small businesses. They will only have to repay the principal amount while the state government will pay the interest, the minister said.
