Sexist BJP MLA Says Dancer Sapna Chaudhary and Sonia Gandhi Belong to Same Profession, Rahul Gandhi Should Marry Her
Surendra Singh's reprehensible comments did nit end there. He also said Rajiv Gandhi married a "dancer from Italy".
Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Surendra Singh on Sunday, March 24, said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi should marry dancer Sapna Chaudhary as his father also married Sonia Gandhi who belonged to the same “profession” and “culture”. He made the sexist remarks a day after reports suggested that Chaudhary has joined the Congress party.
“Rahul Gandhi is also taking his family tradition forward. It is a good thing. Even his mother was a dancer in Italy,” Singh told ANI. The Ballia MLA didn’t stop here. He added, “Now they have accepted Sapna too. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi that the way his father had accepted Sonia Gandhi, he should also accept Sapna and start his new political innings.”
Singh further suggested that even if Rahul Gandhi accepted a dancer, the citizens of this country would not accept her and her presence in any political party would have zero impact. “The people of this country will never allow a dancer to run this country. The country will only be lead by a respectable person like Modi. A dancer joining politics will have no impact on the political scenario of this country,” he said pointing fingers at Chaudhary.
“I am happy that instead of trusting politicians Rahul Gandhi is now trusting dancers. The best part is that the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law will belong to the same profession and culture. So, the Congress party will operate in one direction with the same character and form.”
