A BJP legislator from Uttar Pradesh joined the ‘infamous’ list of political leaders who make bizzare and outrageous comments. In a viral video, Surendra Singh purportedly compares government officials and dancing girls. According to ANI, he says: “Officials se accha charitra vaishyaon ka hota hai, woh paisa lekar kam se kam apna kaam toh karti hain aur stage pe naachti hain. Par yeh officials toh paisa lekar bhi aapka kaam karenge ki nahi, iski koi guarantee hi nahi hai. (Prostitutes are better than officials. They at least do the work worth the money they take and dance on the stage. But these officials take the money, with no guarantee that that they get the work done).
