New Delhi, June 10: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda Brijbhushan Sharan yet again courted controversy with his remarks by saying that only Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adiyanath are not indulged in any kind of corruption activity but the surety about the same for other BJP leaders cannot be guaranteed.
While addressing a public rally yesterday, Sharan said,”Hum itna jantey hai ke na humare Pradhan Mantri khatey and aur na humare Mukhya Mantri khatey hai. Humko apne mukhya Mantri ke upar aur apne Pradhan Mantri ke upar gaarv hai. Humne Mantri nahi kaha hai, sirf Pradhan aur Mukhya Mantri kaha hai. (I’ve said that only the prime minister and the chief minister are incorruptible. I am only talking about them, I cannot say the same thing about other leaders of our party).”
His comments came a week after he stoked controversy by making an absurd statement over the rape incidents in the country. He had said,”The parents of youths are responsible for growing incidents of rape as they do not take care of their wards. Children, up to 15 years of age should be kept under strict vigil. It is the duty of parents to take care of their wards. But they allow their wards to roam around freely.”
