Shazia Ilmi more beautiful than Kiran Bedi, tweets M Katju
New Delhi: Former Press Council chairman Markandey Katju landed himself in yet another controversy when he said that the BJP should have declared Shazia Ilmi as the chief ministerial candidate because she is “more beautiful” than Kiran Bedi.
On his twitter handle yesterday he tweeted, “I regard Shazia Ilmi much more beautiful than Kiran Bedi. If Shazia had been made their C.M. candidate BJP wud have definitely won the Delhi elections….People vote for beautiful faces, as in Croatia. Even a person like me who does not vote wud have voted for Shazia.”
He further explained his point when he cited the example of Croatia’s President. “People vote for beautiful faces, as in Croatia. Even a person like me who does not vote would have voted for Shazia,” his next tweet read.
When angry responses started pouring in, Katju justified his earlier tweets by saying, “Some people objected to my last tweet. My response is: develop a sense of humour. The tweet was in lighter vein,& shud be construed as such”.
