In a controversial statement, Bhartiya Janta Party MLA from Indore, Usha Thakur on Tuesday said that an individual becomes a terrorist or traitor because of his mother’s negligence.
Speaking at an event organised on the occasion of International Women’s Day in Indore, the BJP MLA said, “Mother is responsible for upbringing of her child. If she fails to nurture patriotic values in his heart then she is to blame. If an individual becomes a terrorist, traitor, or Maoist, his mother should be held responsible.”
“Kanhaiya Kumar raised anti-national slogans because his mother failed to teach him about patriotism,” ABP news quoted her as saying.
This is not the first time BJP MLA made a controversial statement.
