As strange as it may sound, BJP MLA from Rajasthan’s Alwar district Gyandev Ahuja took out a piece of paper during a march he was leading on February 22 and started reading the data he had on how many condoms, cigarettes, alcohol bottles, etc., are found in Jawaharlal Nehru University on any given day.
What he said was, “2,000 Indian and foreign liquor bottles are found daily in JNU. More than 10,000 butts of cigarettes and 4,000 pieces of beedis are found. 50,000 big and small pieces of bones are found. 2,000 wrappers of chips and namkeen are found, and so are 3,000 used condoms — the misdeeds they commit with our sisters and daughters there. And 500 used abortion injections are also found.”
Needless to say, there was many a raised eyebrow and wide-eyed reaction to the statement. And for social media hounds who live for statements such as these to start trending, 3,000 condoms daily is just a number they could not let pass in silence. (And can we really blame them?)
BJP MLA took Skill India seriously and specialised in Condom Counting from dustbins outside JNU.

BJP MLA is the only one taking Modi’s Swachh Bharat abhiyaan seriously.

The stupid BJP MLA, by mentioning that 2,000 liquor bottles and 3,000 condoms are found daily at JNU, has rubbed wounds of many engineers.

Rajasthan BJP MLA says that JNU students use over 3000 condoms daily, whereas his poor father couldn’t afford even one in those days.

The way India’s problems are linked with soaring population, finding 4000 condoms anywhere should be a sign of ultimate patriotism.

There is a BJP MLA from Rajasthan, whose daily job is to count used condoms in JNU.
Can anyone beat that for a job description? 😜
