Where the BJP ranks were making controversial comments by saying that Sita was an example of ‘Test tube baby’ the UP deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma has joined that club.
On Friday a video went viral on the social media wherein Sharma said, “Sitaji ka janam hua toh ghadey se hua…us samay test tube baby ka koi na koi project raha hoga jo hal chalaya Janakji ne aur ghadey se baby nikli wo Sitaji ban gayi…ye jo aaj ka jo technology hai test tube baby…wo raha hoga.” On thursday the ex-Lucknow mayor said this while addressing a function marking Hindi Journalism day.
The Sharma’s statement, was not surprising as it left the BJP brass red faced with most of the party leaders distancing them from the controversy. UP BJP spokesperson Rakesh Trtipathi, however, maintained that the controversy was unnecessarily being raked up by some ‘vested interests’. While Rakesh said, “he was referring to technologies which existed during ancient period. There is nothing wrong in it.”
When earlier, Tripura CM Biplab Deb who adviced the youth of his state to not run after politicians for government jobs and, instead, milk cows and open pan shops. While recently, he slammed his critics saying that the nails of those criticizing the government be chopped off. Deb had also left everyone confused when he suggested that only civil engineers are fit for Civil Services and he also advised that mechanical engineers should not.
Surendra Sigh, the BJP MLA from Ballia too had sparked a controversy by calling TMC chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamta Banerjee as a `Suparnakha’ and the BJP was having a Laxman to get rid of her.
