NEW DELHI: A BJP MLA from Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday advised women to only produce ‘sanskari’ babies or remain infertile instead of the ones who deform the society.
Guna MLA Pannalal Shakya was quoted by news agency ANI as saying: “Congress came up with the slogan of ‘Gharibi Hatao‘ but instead wiped out the poor. There are women who give birth to such leaders. Women should rather remain infertile than produce kids who are not ‘sanskari‘ and who deform society.”

This is not the first time when Pannalal is making headlines for such a controversial remark. In March, he asked the boys to refrain from embracing the “western culture of making girlfriends.”
“Recently a journalist asked me why crime against women was rising in MP. I posed a counter-question: tell me why do girls have boyfriends? When girls don’t have boyfriends, there will be no harassment,” Shakya had said.
