Patna: After the ban on alcohol in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has been spreading the message of anti-dowry across the state. He sent a strong message to grooms and their parents who take dowry during marriage.
His comment has raised eyebrows and revealed the truth-“If a man marries another man, will there be childbirth?”
Speaking at the inauguration of a girls’ hostel in Patna, Mr Kumar said there were very few girl students in engineering and medical courses in his time. “It would look very bad.” If a single girl enrolled in the course, “everyone would stare at her,” he said in a lighter vein.
While inaugurating a newly constructed girls hostel in Patna on May 23, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar said, “Taking dowry for marriage is a useless thing. If you’ll get married then only children will be born.What will happen to childbirth if a man gets married to another man?”
“But now, so many girls are pursuing engineering and medical courses. It is the sign of development stated by Nitish.
The Chief Minister said that it is on the demand of women that his government prohibited alcohol consumption. “We have also started campaigns against the dowry system and child marriage.”
“There is nothing worse than taking a dowry for marriage. You will only have kids if you marry. We were born to mothers. “Will anyone be born if a man marries another man?”
“So you will marry and then have kids, and to marry, you ask for a dowry.” There is nothing more wrong than this, he said.
Mr Kumar further added that he would only attend a wedding if the groom’s side declares that they have not taken dowry. “If someone gives in writing that they did not take dowry, only then will we attend the wedding. I have told everyone,” he said.
