Just another routine day for an average Indian.

  • The Sun rose from the East. Check!
  • Kohli scored another century. Check!
  • A BJP leader said something foolish, creating a Twitter uproar. Check!

That’s how it is in our country these days, folks! Not a day passes without an absurd, stupid or controversial remark from a BJP leader. It is almost as if various BJP leaders are competing among each other as to whose statement will be taught as an example of a foot-in-mouth statement to children in school.

This time, it was Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s turn!

Taking upon himself the mantle of safeguarding women’s sobriety, Goa Chief Minister Mr. Manohar Parrikar is under a lot of stress these days, “because even the girls have started drinking beer.”

“I have begun to fear now, because even the girls have started drinking beer. The tolerance limit is being crossed,” Parrikar said, addressing a gathering of students on Friday during a State Youth Parliament organised by Legislature Secretariat of Porvorim, Goa.

There we go!

Gender equality and free choice of women tossed out of the window!

“I am not talking about everyone. I am not talking about these people who are sitting here,” Mr. Parrikar tried to clarify.

As if the women there were eagerly waiting for his moral validation. Or as if all the women went into some deep sense of guilt for having wronged dear uncle Parrikar.

No wonder, Mr. Parrikar was subject to whole lot of ‘admiration’ on Twitter.

And the hashtag #GirlsWhoDrinkBeer became viral within a few hours.

Here‘s the best of the lot.
