A month prior to the results, Sukhbir Jaunapuria, an MP from Tonk–Sawai Madhopur constituency in Rajasthan, uploaded a video on Facebook and claimed that mud and blowing a conch shell will boost your immunity.
In the video, he said:
Go out, get wet in the rain, sit in the dirt, work on the farm, blow a conch … and eat ‘desi’ things. One gains immunity from doing these things.
