    "What's bizarre about the statement? It's not only demeaning for women, it's insulting to Indians."

    During the July 26 Rajya Sabha session, Congress MP from Himachal Pradesh Viplove Thakur demanded that India ban the sale of fairness creams, stating that it is "demeaning for women".

    News 18 has since deleted their tweet.

    And it really didn't go down well with a lot of people.

    A lot of people pointed out that the statement made by the MP was one of the smartest things to come out of a politician's mouth.

    And they just couldn't understand what about the statement was "bizarre".

    C'mon guys.
