Politics is drama, dance and a war of words that is meant to explain a party or candidate's stand on issues. But look closer and we can see politicians making inane and offensive statements that create a stir. And besides being inappropriate, these statements take the cake for being really dumb.

"Those who want to stop no place in India… because their place will be in Pakistan."
"If a woman is caught (in a rape case), then both she and the boy should be punished. In India, there is death penalty for rape, but when there's consensual sex outside marriage, there's no death penalty against women."

"Yadi aap chahte hain ki Chhattisgarh ke upar kisi khooni panje ka saya na pade to aap sabhi kamal mein button dabana aur Chhattisgarh ko khooni panje se bachana "
