A lawmaker in India has made it clear that he doesn't think much of government officials, saying that prostitutes are better than them because they actually do work after getting paid.
"Prostitutes are better than government officials; at least they take money and do their work and also dance on the stage. But these officials, even after taking money, don't do their work. There is no guarantee that the work will be done," Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Surendra Singh said at a public gathering on Wednesday, ANI news agency reported.
It comes just one day after Singh, who is known for his controversial comments, shared a message about how to deal with government officials. "If he does not agree to do his work, teach him a lesson by punching him and if he still does not agree, thrash him with shoes," he said.
