Dehradun: Few days after triggering controversy with his remarks on “Ripped Jeans”, the newly appointed Uttarakhand CM has once come under the spotlight for his yet another controversial remark, saying people should have produced more children to get extra ration during the coronavirus pandemic.
Addressing an event in Nainital’s Ramnagar, CM Tirath Singh Rawat said those with less children in their family got less government ration during coronavirus-induced lockdown in comparison to “those with 20 children”.
“Those having 10 children got 50 kg while those with 20 got one quintal. People with two children got 10 kg. People built stores and found buyers,” Tirath Singh Rawat said.
“Who is to blame for this? Now you are jealous of it. When there was time, you produced only two. Why didn’t you produce 20,” Tirath Singh Rawat said.
