In a season of controversial comments by BJP leaders, another MLA, Raj Purohit, said on Friday, just like the birth of a son brings good news after nine months, so will the BJP’s achche din.
The MLA’s comment came at an event, when he was talking about the BJP’s ‘acche din’ slogan.
“Good days do not come immediately. One has to wait for nine months to have good days. Now nine months have been completed. Good things will soon happen. Now, the son will be born.”
The media attending the event took him up on his comment and asked if the birth of a girl child is not good news. “Don’t take my remarks in the wrong way. I just said the birth of a son will bring good days, in a way to say that development cannot happen suddenly, it needs time to happen,” Purohit said.
He went on to say “I have always encouraged women.”
