Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar has blamed the frequent load shedding at night for the rise in population. After all,what does one do if there is no power? When you are idle you engage in making babies, he said,addressing a public rally at Indapur,in Pimpri-Chinchwad in Pune,on Saturday night.
Pawar,who holds the important portfolios of finance and energy,said: I know after listening to me,people must be wondering whats wrong today? Did I take a drink in the afternoon?
NCP chief Sharad Pawar refused to comment on the matter.
