UP deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma made a controversial comment on Friday by claiming that Sita was a test tube baby.
He said that Sita was born from a concept similar to test tube as she was born from an earthen pot
He said, "People say Sita ji was born from an earthen pot, which means at the time of Ramayana, a concept similar to test tube baby must have existed".
Referring to the Mahabharata he further went on to say that the live streaming technology must have existed during the Mahabharata.
He said,"Today, the live telecast is being done, but I think a similar technology was present at the time of Mahabharata when Sanjay presented a 'live telecast' of the battle of Mahabharata to Dhritarashtra".
The latest comments by the BJP leader has added to the list of the BJP ranks who have created controversy by their statements.
Earlier Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb had said that the internet and satellite were not new to the country and existed even during the Maharabharat era.
He had also advocated the people should not run after government jobs instead they should milk cows.
After a series of bizarre remarks, the Chief Minister was called to New Delhi by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
