What are your expectations from a road? No seriously, give it a thought. It should be damage-free, spacious, with less traffic. Right? But would you ever expect roads of your locality to be like an actress’s cheeks? Well, someone does (for real).

While addressing people in Udaipurwati in Rajasthan, Congress MLA Rajendra Singh Gudha said that “the roads [of his district] should be as smooth as Katrina Kaif’s cheeks.”

The minister made this bizarre statement during his first visit to his assembly constituency, Udaipurwati. During the interaction, some people demanded better roads in the district. Jokingly, MLA Gudha told the chief engineer of the PWD that the district should have roads like “Katrina Kaif’s cheeks”.

We know this sounds quite unbelievable, but this is not the first time we're hearing something like this! Several politicians have made such bizarre statements in the past that you will need a while to lift your jaw from the floor. We have listed a few for you.

1. KARUNA (CORONA) GO! GO KARUNA

Ramdas Athawale, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment and President of the Republican Party of India chanted “Go Karuna (corona)” during the initial outbreak of Covid-19 in India. The video became a national sensation. He can be seen with a group of people on the streets, with all of them holding posters and reciting the jingle. Go Corona should be an anthem of sorts, we think. No?

2. PRIYANKA CHOPRA ZINDABAD!

Former Congress leader Surender Kumar went viral after he said Priyanka Chopra zindabad instead of Priyanka Gandhi at a rally in Delhi.

He said, “Sonia Gandhi zindabad! Congress party zindabad! Rahul Gandhi zindabad! Priyanka Chopra zindabad!” 

3. RS 600 IS ENOUGH FOR A FAMILY OF 5

Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit made a next-to-impossible remark in 2012, during the launch of Annshree Yojana, Delhi government’s cash-for-food programme. She mentioned that the subsidy of Rs 600 is “adequate for buying the monthly dal, roti and chawal for a family of five”.

If you do the maths, this statement states that a person can survive on food for Rs 4 per day. Well, in such a case you’ll be buying orange candies for lunch and dinner.

4. BLAME THE NOODLES FOR INCREASING RAPE CASES

Jitender Chhatar, a panchayat leader in Harayana’s Jind district blamed the delicious chowmein for increasing rape cases in the state. “Consumption of chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance and the urge to indulge in such acts [rape],” he said in October 2012.

5. ANOTHER “CHEEK” COMMENT

It is not the first time when Bollywood actress’s cheeks became an inspiration for roadways. Raja Ram Pandey (late) from Samajwadi Party also made a similar comment. He promised 'roads like cheeks of Hema Malini and Madhuri Dixit' in Pratapgarh district, Uttar Pradesh.
