Alwar: Loktantrik Janata Dal (LJD) leader Sharad Yadav made a derogatory remark against Vasundhara Raje on Wednesday. While addressing an election rally in Alwar district, ahead of Rajasthan Assembly Election 2018, the leader body-shamed the state Chief Minister.
“Vasundhra ko aaram do, bahut thak gayi hain, bahut moti ho gayi hain, pehle patli thi. Humare Madhya Pradesh ki beti hai. (Vasundhara needs to rest. She is very tired. She has gained a lot of weight. Earlier, she was thin. She is our Madhya Pradesh’s daughter),” Yadav can be seen saying in a video shared by news agency ANI, a day before the 200-Assembly seats goes to polls in the state.
This is not the first time that the LJD party leader has made such derogatory remark. Earlier in 2017, he had said that the ‘honour of a vote is bigger and important that the honour of daughter’. In 2015, while speaking in the Rajya Sabha, he made a comparison of the women in north and south. He said, “The body of women from the south is as good as beautiful they are. They (women) in our region are not that good as those (in south) know dancing.”

The state is witnessing a tough contest between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress. The counting of votes will be held on December 11, along with four other states – Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram.
