In a bizarre remark, Madhya Pradesh minister and Congress leader PC Sharma compared the present condition of roads in the state to the cheeks of BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya and added that the Kamal Nath government will make it as smooth as Hema Malini's cheeks.
The minister's statement came while he was inspecting Habibganj area along with Public Works Development (PWD) minister Sajjan Verma.
Interacting with reporters in Bhopal, PC Sharma said, "Roads in Madhya Pradesh were built like that of Washington. What has happened to these roads now? After heavy rain, there are potholes everywhere."
During his visit to the US in 2017, Shivraj Singh Chouhan had said that the condition of roads in Madhya Pradesh is better than the US. He was grilled publicly by citizens and members of the Congress party for his statement at the time.
While this above comment was a swipe at the previous Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in the state, he went further and compared the roads to the cheeks of Kailash Vijayvargiya.
"Presently, the condition of roads is like stains of smallpox. It seems that the condition of the roads has become like the cheeks of Kailash Vijayvargiya," he said.
Sharma went on to say that the roads will be transformed and made as smooth as the cheeks of Hema Malini.
"These roads will be repaired within 15 days on the orders of Chief Minister Kamal Nath. Very soon we will make these roads like cheeks of Hema Malini," Sharma added.
After Lalu Yadav, the minister of Kamal Nath government also talked about making roads like Hema Malini's cheek.
