"In the last 15-16 yrs, around 32 of our MLAs (in MP) have died. 'Vaastu' has today become 'shaastra' as well as science. All I want to say is that if these things have an effect & there's no extra expense, then this should be looked into," Bhargav was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

This is not the first time that Bhargav has sparked a row. Earlier, the BJP leader had heavily criticised the Congress government over the inclusion of eggs in the mid-day meals in Madhya Pradesh saying that eggs will make children cannibals. He also attacked Chief Minister Kamal Nath and claimed that kids were being forced to eat eggs and meat.
