Will Make MP Roads Like Hema Malini’s Cheeks: Minister PC Sharma
Madhya Pradesh minister PC Sharma said on Wednesday, 16 October, that the pothole-ridden roads in Bhopal would soon be made "pretty" like actor-turned-politician Hema Malini's "cheeks".
The state law minister said the roads have spots similar to smallpox, like "(BJP general secretary) Kailash Vijayvargiya's cheeks".
During an inspection of a road near Habibganj railway station, he was accompanied by minister Verma, PTI reported.
"Roads in the state were built like that of Washington and New York. What happened to these roads in just one rain (monsoon)? There are potholes everywhere," the minister said.
He was apparently referring to former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan's remarks which he made two years ago, where he said the state's pathways were better than those in Washington.
