New Delhi [India], Jan. 25: The National Commission for Women (NCW) on Wednesday issued a notice to the Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav for his derogatory statement on women.

Raking up a controversy, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav has on Tuesday said that ‘honour of vote is important than that of daughter’s. “Honour of vote is bigger and important than honour of daughter. If daughter’s honour is compromised, it only affects the village or community but if the vote’s honour is compromised, it impacts the entire nation,” Yadav said.

The former National President of JD (U) was addressing a public gathering yesterday in Bihar’s capital, when he raised brows of many by quoting this controversial remark. Yadav, who is also a member of Rajya Sabha, was speaking on the occasion of birth anniversary of former Bihar CM Karpoori Thakur.  Yadav’s statement has drawn a huge flak with many asking him to apologise.
