Most Controversial Statements by Indian Politicians

The New Year 2015 began with a controversy that a shocking comment for the Hindu women by Sakshi Maharaj, a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party and RSS, created across the country. Not only Hari Sakshi Maharaj but many other Indian politicians from Rajiv Gandhi to Mamata Banerjee have sent shivers of shock down the spine of India. Instead of encouraging the youth, uniting the mass, protecting public interests and ensuring safety of women, most of these politicians love being in headlines for controversial comments. I curated some of the most controversial statements by Indian politicians below:     

“Every Hindu woman must produce at least 4 kids to protect Hinduism.”

–  Sakshi Maharaj, BJP MP from Unnao

Boys and girls should be married by the time they turn 16, so that they do not stray… this will decrease the incidents of rape”

– Sube Singh, a Panchayat leader’s idea to prevent rape.

“There is this person from Solapur, sitting on hunger strike for 55 days demanding water be released from the dam. But where are we going to get water from? Should we urinate? And when we are not getting water to drink even urine is not coming easily,”

– Ajit Pawar, Deputy CM (nephew of Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar)

If there is electricity in every village, people will watch TV till late night and then fall asleep. They won’t get a chance to produce children. When there is no electricity, there is nothing else to do, but produce babies”

–  Gulam Nabi Azad, Health Minister’s idea to control population

To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents (rape). Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts.

“Rs 600 per month is enough to feed a family of 5.”

Sheila Dikshit, former CM of Delhi

“Some riots took place in the country following the murder of Indiraji. We know the people were very angry and for a few days it seemed that India had been shaken. But, when a mighty tree falls, it is only natural that the earth around it does shake a little.”

Rajiv Gandhi, Ex-PM of India justifying the brutal massacre of Sikhs in 1984

Arvind Kejriwal is like Rakhi Sawant. They both try and expose but with no substance.

–  Digvijay Singh, Senior Leader of INC

Rape cases are on a rise in the country because men and women interact with each other more freely now.

–  Mamata Banerjee, CM of West Bengal

“I work so much. If I don’t get all the comforts, I will turn mad.”

-Lalu Prasad Yadav, Ex-Bihar CM clearly endorsing corruption.

With the increasing price levels, the farmers are benefiting. Dal, atta, vegetables have all become expensive. I am happy with this price rise. The more the prices rise the better it is for farmers.”

– Beni Prasad Verma, a member of the Indian National Congress, on inflation

“One of the reasons behind the increase in incidents of eve-teasing is short dresses and short skirts worn by women. This in turn instigates young men.”

Chiranjeet Chakraborty, Trinamool Congress legislator.

“I can guarantee that roads of my constituency will be smoother than Katrina’s waist.”

 – Rakhi Sawant, a member of Republican Party of India

The children who are coming to the hospitals, their mothers had become pregnant 10 months ago. Our government is not even 10 months old. Don’t forget it.”

 –  Mr. Faruq Abdulla, ex-CM of Jammu & Kashmir

“If we send industrialists to jail, we would be discouraging investment.”

– Salman Khurshid, in a bid to justify the government’s inaction in the 2G scam

“One should not be adventurous being a woman.”

Sheila Dikshit, ex-CM of Delhi

“The rape victim is as guilty as her rapists. She should have called the culprits brothers and begged before them to stop. This could have saved her dignity and life. Can one hand clap? I don’t think so.”

“I warn my opponents, if anything happens to my mothers or sisters, my party workers, I will not spare them, I will have the last word. I will make their family pay dearly. I will ask my boys to go there. They will rape them and leave.”
