NEW DELHI -- Gyandev Ahuja, Bharatiya Janata Party's lawmaker from Alwar, provided this week's comic relief to otherwise dreadfully serious Jawharlal Nehru University row.
Ahuja said that 3,000 condoms, 500 anti-abortion injections, 3,000 beer bottles, 2,000 bottles of alcohol, more than 10,000 cigarette butts and 4,000 bidi parts, and over 50,000 bones, small and big, are found everyday on the JNU campus.
In an interview with Ginnie, the popular radio jockey on Radio City 91.1, Ahuja revealed today that he got his facts and figures from "WhatsApp."
No darling, no dear, no egg, no beer, no smoke, no cheer..."
Here are the highlights from their conversation:
Ginnie: Sir, you have given a statement. 4,000 bidis, 3,000 condoms, 2,000 bottles of alcohol. Sir, where did you get these numbers?
Ahuja: This came on my WhatsApp. I have said the figures that came on my WhatsApp.
Ginnie: Sir, it has come on Whatsapp that you are an idiot, but I don't believe that. You can't believe whatever comes on Whatsapp?
Ahuja: No, you can't believe it. The news that comes on Whatsapp can be right and wrong.
Ginnie: So shouldn't you have checked before saying anything.
Ahuja: Should be checked. I feel sorry for that.
When Ginne goes on to berate him about the image he is creating for India, Ahuja unleashes a tirade: "I'm one of those, no darling, no dear, no egg, no beer, no smoke, no cheer....."
