Guna (Madhya Pradesh): Local BJP MLA Pannalal Shakya has advice for girls — do not make boyfriends and all will be well.
"Why do girls have boyfriends? If they stop doing this, the atrocities against them will stop," Shakya on Saturday said at an event at the Guna Government College.
"A TV channel recently asked for my comment on atrocities against women in Madhya Pradesh. I told them what I told you just now," he said.
The MLA also wanted boys to refrain from embracing the "western culture of making girlfriends".
