Don’t Have a Home, Food to Eat? Blame God, Suggests Union Minister Mahesh Sharma (Watch)
According to the BJP leader, since "we are god's children", it is god's responsibility to ensure access to basic necessities.
The Union Minister of State for Culture and Tourism, Mahesh Sharma, has outdone all politicians when it comes to justifying a government’s failures. Reportedly speaking at an event in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh, he said that ensuring access to basic necessities is god’s responsibility.
In a video shared by journalist Piyush Rai, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader is seen saying that it is not possible for an MP to reach villages. He said that as an MP, he can, at best, take calls from people but it is not possible for him to ensure that works are carried out. He said that it is not possible for even god to get anyone’s work done.

Virtually cartwheeling to shrug-off any responsibility as an elected representative, Sharma said, “The biggest fool here, is not you or me, it’s god.”
The Gautam Buddha Nagar MP then said, “Who are we? We have been created by him (god). We are all god’s children,” hence, according to Sharma, “it is god’s responsibility to ensure that we have homes…he should have given us money for our children’s education…should have ensured that people get two square meals a day.”
