BJP MLA Ravindra Chavan, from Maharashtra, is finding himself in a huge controversy after a video of him giving absurd comments went viral.
The clip, which was shot during the inaugural function of the Smart City Program in Thane, has since then gone viral on social media.

After giving the example, Chavan had gone on to add that PM Narendra Modi and Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis too similarly were working hard so as to uplift ‘Dalits’.
It also ended up landing the BJP leader in a huge trouble with the dalit community, as many expressed outrage over what he said.
The bizarre comparison has also angered many Dalit organisations who are now demanding an apology from the MLA, with the district unit of NCP even going a step ahead and organizing a “Naming Ceremony” for a pig, so it can be named Ravindra Chavan.
This is not the first time that a BJP leader has found himself in trouble for making absurd comments.
