Gadkari says he uses his urine to grow his plants faster

New Delhi: Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has said that he uses his urine to grow his plants faster, a revelation that may not impress his neighbours, including Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

In a video uploaded on YouTube, Gadkari is heard revealing that he once used his own urine on plants in his lawns at his 2, Motilal Nehru Marg residence, a bungalow that used to be the office of the former National Advisory Council headed by Sonia Gandhi and is just across the road from her 10, Janpath home.

Gadkari was at a workshop organized by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on tackling drought.

"I collected my urine in a small plastic can. And after collecting all of it in a 50-litre can - I have a big bungalow in Delhi. It used to be Madam Sonia Gandhi's bungalow. I have some one acre of farming land in my compound in the bungalow," he said.

"I am just telling you about urine, I'm not going any further than that. This is manure. You keep a 50-litre can in your house. You can try this out. This has urea and nitrogen. And, if you water an orange tree with this, you observe its growth rate. You observe the growth and number of flowers, fruit --- this is very good manure. To save money is to earn money. Being industrious and innovative is important," he was quoted as saying in The Telegraph.

The BJP leader’s ‘gardening tip’ has fuelled a frenzy of jokes and comments on Twitter.
