Hours after hugely popular artist Sapna Choudhary joined the Congress, BJP MLA from Ballia in Uttar Pradesh Surendra Singh stooped to a new low by comparing former Bigg Boss contestant and Haryanvi singer and dancer with the UPA Chairperson, Sonia Gandhi.
Equating Sonia Gandhi to Sapna Choudhary, he said, ‘Both have dancing background’.
In a video that went viral on social media, Singh also said that he wanted to congratulate Congress President Rahul Gandhi for embracing Sapna despite her profession as a dancer the same way former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi had embraced Sonia Gandhi despite she belonging to ‘the same profession’ before marriage.

Singh’s sexist slur has got him enough criticism from the netizens. There are reports that the famous folk singer and dancer may be pitted against BJP’s Hema Malini from Mathura in this year’s Lok Sabha polls.
