Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Dinesh Sharma surprised everyone with yet another bizarre statement. He claimed that the birth of Lord Ram’s consort Sita was proof of test-tube technology in ancient times.
Speaking at an event on the occasion of Hindi Journalism Day he said, “When Sita was born there must have been some thing similar to present day test-tube baby technology as her father Janak ploughed the land and found the baby in a pot. This is proof that such advanced technology was there during the times of Ramayana”.
This is not the first time that a BJP Leader has made a bizarre statement. Some of them include Lord Hanuman being the first tribal, Narada being the first search engine, Internet during Mahabharata etc. It is good to know that these political leaders are taking Indian mythology seriously but there are many issues awaiting their attention that should be looked upon first.
