Several political leaders have grabbed headlines earlier with their controversial statements, especially associating with Bollywood actresses. This time, Jharkhand MLA from Congress Dr Irfan Ansari jumped on the bandwagon.
Ansari landed in controversy after he promised to construct roads in his area that would be smoother than Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut’s cheeks. In the viral video, the leader can be heard saying that he will construct 14 world-class roads soon and such smooth roads can be used by children from the tribal community and the state’s youth.
He further assures that the roads will be smoother than Kangana Ranaut’s cheeks.

This is not the first time when the Congress MLA came into the limelight for his statements. Earlier this week, he claimed that people should not wear face masks for a long time as it is not good for health. He further said that one should only wear a mask in crowds and there is no need to panic amid the third wave of Covid-19.
Earlier, Shiv Shena leader and Maharashtra minister Gulabrao Patil had triggered controversy after he compared the smoothness of roads in his constituency with Hema Malini’s cheeks. The minister had to apologise for his statement after the state women’s commission objected to his remarks.
In November 2021, Rajasthan newly appointed minister Rajendra Singh Gudha had also sparked a row after he compared the roads of his state with Bollywood actor’s Katrina Kaif’s cheeks.
