Lucknow, March 24: BJP MLA Surendra Singh has once again sparked a fresh controversy ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The Bharatiya Janata Party leader targeted United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi, saying that she was a dancer in Italy and Congress President Rahul Gandhi is following his father Rajiv Gandhi's footsteps by bringing Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary into the politics.

Singh, who is known for making an outrageous comment, also said that Rahul Gandhi should marry Chaudhary and start a family with her. The statement was made after there were reports that Sapna has joined the grand old party on Saturday.

"Rahul ji ki Mata ji bhi Italy mein isi peshe se thi. Jaise aapke pitaji ne Sonia ji ko apna bana liya tha, aap bhi Sapna ko apna banaye. (Rahul Gandhi's mother was also in the same profession in Italy and how his father made her his own, he should also take the family tradition forward and make Sapna his own), " Singh said, adding that "the best thing is both mother-in-law and daughter-in-law will be from the same profession."

Singh further said that Indian voters will never accept dancers to lead the country. He added, "I'm glad that Rahul has lost faith in politicians and is now trusting dancers to do the politics."
This is not the first time that the BJP leader has made sexist jibe. A few days ago, the MLA said that Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati does facial in her face and also colours her hair, so she has no right to question Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
