Gaur has been in the news, in the recent times, following his controversial remarks and actions.
Here are some of the controversies that surrounds him:
Inappropriate touching: Babulal Gaur found himself in the eye of a storm after he was caught on camera touching a woman “inappropriately”. However, the minister claimed that “there is no truth in the clipping” and that he was directing women BJP workers to board a bus. The purported video clip of the incident, which went viral on social media and was flashed on TV news channels, showed the veteran politician slapping the rear of a woman.

Vyapam scam deaths remark: In June 2015, when he was asked about the deaths of several accused and witnesses in the Vyapam scam, he said, “Whoever is born has to die one day. It’s mrityulok.’’ “Pareshan hone wale hote rahe. Mai to mast rahta hu (those who get hassled let them do so. I remain cheerful),” the veteran leader said in reply to a question on whether so many deaths and the scam itself bother him.
Gaur said everyone has to die irrespective of one’s status as king or commoner. “Whether the death takes place in a hospital or outside, it’s the same.”

Dhoti remark: In May 2015, Gaur recalled how the wife of a Russian leader was curious about his dhoti. He, reportedly, said the wife of a Russian leader was curious about how he wore the dhoti without a zip or a belt. “I told her I can’t teach you how to wear it, but I can certainly teach you how to remove it, but that too later not now,’’ local newspapers quoted the veteran leader as saying during an event.

Rape remark: Back in 2014 he had made a remark saying that rape is “sometimes wrong and sometimes right and that it is a social problem which no government can prevent”.
He went on to say that no government can ensure rape is prevented and action can be taken only after the act.
“It is a social crime which depends on the man and the woman. It is sometimes right and sometimes wrong. Unless a complaint is filed, nothing happens,” he said. “It is not possible for any government to ensure that rape is not committed. Action can be taken only after the act is done,” he told reporters at his residence.
