Over the years, many politicians have made bizarre statements that have triggered multiple reactions. From Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement “I have begun to fear now, because even the girls have started drinking beer,” to Sangeet Som stating that Taj Mahal was built by ‘traitors’ and cannot be included in Indian history, there are many such utterances that can be listed out. Adding to the long list is a recent comment made by the UP Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma.

Speaking at an event in Mathura, which was organised to celebrate Hindi Journalism Day, the politician made many such statements that seemed a little hard to digest. While addressing the public, he said, “Today, live telecast is being done, but I think a similar technology was present at the time of Mahabharata, when Sanjay presented a ‘live telecast’ of the battle of Mahabharata to Dhritarashtra,” according to ANI.

Furthermore, he then went on to say that Sita’s birth was similar to the present day concept of test-tube baby. “People say Sita ji was born from an earthen pot, which means at the time of Ramayana, a concept similar to test tube baby must have existed,” tweeted the news agency.

The post immediately created a buzz on social media, with many wondering why politicians are constantly talking about the past instead of focussing on the future. Here are some of the reactions the comment garnered:
