BJP MLA Compares Govt Officials With Pro...

BJP MLA Surendra Singh has once again stoked a controversy by comparing government officials with prostitutes. Addressing a chetavni diwas (warning day)’ meeting in Ballia district on Tuesday, Singh said, “Prostitutes are better than officials. They take money and dance all night. But these officers despite taking money from the public don’t do work.”

He further urged his supporters to beat government officials if they demand a bribe. “If he does not agree to do his work, teach him a lesson by punching him and if he still does not agree, thrash him with shoes,” he said.

 

However, this is not the first time the BJP MLA has courted controversy with his remarks. Singh had earlier called West Bengal Chief Minister Surpanakha’ and compared opposition Congress to ‘Ravana’. “Mamata Banerjee is playing the role of Surpanakha. People are being killed and even though she is the chief minister, she is doing nothing,” Surendra Singh said. In the past too, Surender Singh had invited controversy by defending Unnao rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and also when he claimed that India will become a Hindu Rashtra by 2022. After the recent Kairana Lok Sabha and Noorpur assembly bypolls, he had blamed the ministers in the Yogi Adityanath government for the party’s humiliating defeat at both places. He said if certain ministers were not removed from the state cabinet, the ruling party’s downfall in UP was certain. Singh had said if the grievances of the poor people are not heard at police stations, tehsil offices and block offices, they will not vote for the BJP.
