Beni Prasad Verma happy with increasing road accidents as it is good for car mechanics


Union Steel Minister Beni Prasad Verma, who recently stated that the UPA Government favours high inflation since it benefits farmers, has also expressed his satisfaction with increase in road accidents on the grounds that it benefits automobile mechanics.

“I am very happy with the surge in road accidents. More and more vehicles get damaged and it is good for the mechanics, because it increases their income.” Lashing out at the media once again, Verma said, “The media makes such huge mountains of molehills. With every accident, mechanics earn more and the government is in favor of mechanics’ profits.”

Verma also added that mechanics aren’t the only ones who benefit from accidents. “Accidents are good for doctors too, because the more lives they end up saving, the more rewards and gifts they get. Our country needs FDI, so that more imported and expensive cars get damaged, and mechanics and doctors stand to gain,” Verma said.

Visibly unfazed by the onslaught of criticism he is being subject to, Verma asked, “Why shouldn’t road accidents increase, when insurances are becoming easier to obtain?” However, Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid said that Verma is most likely being quoted out of context. “He probably meant to say road accidents are good in that they make people all the more conscious of road safety and traffic rules,” Khurshid said.

The BJP has slammed Verma for his remarks, with senior leader Arun Jaitley saying, “If Beni’s earlier statement was agricultural, then this one is rank mechanical.” Reacting to Verma’s remarks that 2014 will be direct contest between the Congress’ Rahul Gandhi and the BJP’s Narendra Modi, Jaitley said, “Here’s a friendly piece of advice to the Congress: you guys will have greater chances of winning, should Beni be your PM candidate instead of Rahul.”

    Reacting to Mr Jaitley’s words on elections, Mr Beni Prasad said that he favored population explosion in the country as it would strengthen the voters’ base of every single party in the country. He appealed to the citizens of the country to “Contribute according to their capacity” towards the fortification of the nation’s democratic base. One person who heaped praises on Mr Prasad for his comments was Congress spokesperson Mr Digvijay Singh ; Mr Singh went a step ahead of Mr Prasad by stating that he favored corruption in the country as it would lead to the CBI and other anti-corruption agencies / Bureaus probing more and more of scams and cases. This would add to their pressure and call for the recruitment of more personnel. Hence in the opinion of Mr Singh, corruption basically helps in solving the problem of unemployment in the country……………………..
