BJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Keshav Prasad Maurya's remarks on corruption has left the party embarrassed. At a function in Hardoi yesterday, Maurya’s advice for officials sounded like he was okay with corruption in moderation.
“Kamao lekin dal main namak barabar hona chahiye. Khao jaise dal main namak khaya jata hai (Eat but not more than the salt you would put in your food),” he told the officials at the function.
Whether Maurya quoted a wrong proverb or his message was just lost in translation is up for debate.
